My Symphony of Life


My Symphony of Life
To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury, and
refinement rather than fashion.
To be worthy, not respectable, and
wealthy, not rich; to study hard,
think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages, with open heart;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual,
unbidden and unconscious, grow up
through the common.
                  This will be my Symphony.
                         -WILLIAM HENRY CHANNING
