    Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind
    To be to large for worry
    To strong for fear.
    To give so much time to the improvement of yourself you have no time to criticize others
    To think only the best
    To work only to better yourself
    To give the best of yourself
    To expect only the best from others
    The improvement of one is to complete happiness in ones own world where trouble is not permitted and violence is not a practice
    The goal is to obtain and detain knowledge
    To give our children the knowledge to improve our world
    Where knowledge is shared and practice
    Unity is the response.

      I used to have a poster with that on it in my 20's....long, long ago.  Also had the Desiderata.

      Go placidly amid the noise and the 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;
      and listen to others,
      even to the dull and the ignorant;
      they too have their story.
      Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
      they are vexatious to the spirit.

      If you compare yourself with others,
      you may become vain or bitter,
      for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
      Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
      Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
      it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

      Exercise caution in your business affairs,
      for the world is full of trickery.
      But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
      many persons strive for high ideals,
      and everywhere life is full of heroism.
      Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
      Neither be cynical about love,
      for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
      it is as perennial as the grass.

      Take kindly the counsel of the years,
      gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
      Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
      But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
      Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

      Beyond a wholesome discipline,
      be gentle with yourself.
      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.

      Therefore be at peace with God,
      whatever you conceive Him to be.
      And whatever your labors and aspirations,
      in the noisy confusion of life,
      keep peace in your soul.

      With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
      it is still a beautiful world.
      Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
