Max Ehrmann: "Let me do my work each day, and if the darkened hours of despair overcome me, may I not forget the strength that comforted me in the desolation of other times... Spare me from bitterness and from the sharp passions of unguarded moments. May I not forget that poverty and riches are of the spirit. Though the world knows me not, may my thoughts and actions be such as will keep me friendly with myself. Lift up my eyes from the earth and let me not forget the uses of the stars. Forbid that I should judge others, lest I condemn myself. Let me not follow in the clamor of the world, but walk calmly in my path... And though age and infirmity overtake me and I come not within sight of the castle of my dreams, teach me still to be thankful for life and for time's oldest memories that are good and sweet, and may the evening's twilight find me gentle still"
