Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
- Join Date

- Brooklyn, NY
- SAMBO, mma, jiujitsu
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.
-excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.
