LSQ; Philosophy via AOM



Luna Station Quarterly has made "Reach For The Stars" their story of the week. Lovely!

By his estimation, Gryff is now First Mate. (click for the rest)

From Desiderata by Max Ehrmann:

Go placidly amid the noise and 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 vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and 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.

Via AOM, where you can read the rest.
