Desiderata

Author: Max Ehrmann
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
ISBN: 0740740016
Release Date: 2003-09-01
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

It?s telling that Desiderata has taken on a life of its own. Its simple universality and basic truths have been adopted by and attributed to, among others, the 60s flower children, singer Les Crane, who put the poetry to music in 1971, and even to mysterious entities from the 17th century. But it was Max Ehrmann, a poet, playwright, philosopher, and lawyer from Terre Haute, Indiana, who in 1927 started one of the world?s most popular poems with the line, ?Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. ??Now Desiderata (Latin for ?things to be desired?) comes to a new generation of readers and thinkers through the pages of Desiderata: A Survival Guide for Life. This inspiring book matches Ehrmann?s poetic prose with evocative black-and-white photography that?s as rich in texture and depth as the text it illustrates. The author?s formula for happiness?a gentle urging to be at peace with God and life?provides comfort and direction, solace and clarity, no matter what the reader?s personal perspective or circumstances. This rejuvenated work is truly inspiring.
