It is a wonderful feeling of familiarity and closeness we get when we read old literature or poetry and we find that those poets had gone through the same struggles as we do. That they experienced love and pain and questioned the same things hundreds of years before us.
The truth is, when it comes to primal human emotions and how we react to them has not changed. Because the things that make us human and good people are not affected by the passing of time.
Below is a poem written by Max Ehrmann titled Desiderata that really speaks volumes about the most important things in our lives. And it is also a reminder to always be honest, accepting, respectful, and kind.
So, read this poem every time you have self-doubts or you are going through a hard time. It will open your mind and will remind you of the truly important things in life.
