This morning I read a quote and it was exactly what I needed to hear. These words are the words of an Indiana poet named Max Ehrmann, dated 1927. It is entitled :
"Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, 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; listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they, too, have their story."
