Our framed 'Desiderata' print gives you the chance for continuous support and inspiration to accept the beauty of you and then share that fully in your life. Written by a simple lawyer from Indiana in 1927, Max Ehrmann, the poem was not fully discovered until a friend found it by Ehrmann's deathbed. Since the 1960's, the written and spoken versions of the poem brought it to the hearts of many. The words are used as inspirational prose and address the desire to achieve happiness in life. This framed 'Desiderata' print protects it under glass and is expertly framed in a handsome 11 x 14 inches wood frame. Don't miss this chance to let your heart lead your life or share it with someone in your life that is struggling between 'mind and heart.' Giving the framed 'Desiderata' print to a friend or family member is well received at birthdays, sacramental celebrations, or simply when you want to say, 'thank you for being you.'

Framed 'Desiderata' Print: 11 x 14 Wood Frame Under Glass

The framed Desiderata print reads:

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as 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.
