9780091889098: Desiderata: A survival guide for life

Famous for its eloquent stating of the simple truths that are often overlooked in the busyness of everyday life, Desiderata (Latin for 'things to be desired') contains a timeless message of faith, hope and charity. The poem was actually written by American Max Ehrmann in 1927, but achieved its greatest fame as the anthem of Sixties' hippie-dom - becoming the subject of many millions of posters. Over the years, Desiderata has provided a kind and gentle philosophy, a refreshing perspective on life's bigger picture. This beautifully produced new presentation of the poem will bring it to the attention of a whole new audience, appealing both to a younger generation looking to find more meaning in life as well as to baby-boomers who recall it from their youth.
