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 buds, to babes and sages,
With open heart, await occasions, hurry never.
This is my symphony.
-William Henry Channing
