This is my Symphony

picture by Kent Mercurio

'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 buds, to babes, and
sages, with open heart; await occasions,
hurry never....this is my symphony.

-William Henry Channing
