Legacy De Mon Pere

To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy 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 hear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never;
in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious
grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.
