This is, indefinitely, my new favorite quote! I'm only surprised I didn't come across it sooner because I couldn't not have explained better my own philosophy of life- this is it. <3

This is, indefinitely, my new favorite quote! I'm only surprised I didn't come across it sooner because I couldn't not have explained better my own philosophy of life- this is it.

Haven't been able to find a 'good' version of this in so long. One of my all-time favorites!  "with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."    Desiderata Poster by Matt Dominguez, via Behance

You are a child of the Universe no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be here and whether or not it is clear to you no doubt, the Universe is unfolding as it should.

You are a child of the Universe. (From the Desiderata) This quote touches my spirit so much. I cry every time I read it~

I wish I had found this poem sooner.  "With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world."

* Desiderata

The Desiderata by Max Ehrmann 1927 - one of the most beautiful poems ever written. Was given a card with it on, first time I'd ever read it, still have it today.

I can not lie: No matter how many dippie numskulls have co-opted this quote over the last 90 years, it it still awesome to me. YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, CHEESY NIMRODS.
