This is to be my Symphony

"To live content with small means;
  to seek elegance rather than luxury
  and refinement rather than fasion;
  to be worthy, respectable and wealth, not rich;
  to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
  to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages with open heart;
  to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occassions, hurry never.
  In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious
  grow up through the common.
  This is to be my symphony."

~William Henry Channing
