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 birds, babes and sages, with open heart -
to bear all cheerfully - do all bravely, await occasions - never hurry; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.
