Synopsis: A timeless and beautiful picture book--the perfect gift for every stage and season of life.
The inspirational words of Max Ehrmann's timeless poem "Desiderata" have touched millions of readers throughout the world since it was first written in 1927. Now, more than 75 years later, the poem's simplicity and affirmation of life resonate more than ever, offering us--as only the truest words can--wisdom for how to live our lives with dignity, compassion, and faith.
Marc Tauss's lyrical photographs, by turns surprising, thought provoking, and beautiful, are a visual poem in themselves.
About the Author: Max Ehrmann was an attorney turned philosopher-poet who live in Terre Haute, Ind. He spent his life wrestling with the realities of making a living and following his personal calling to a life of poetry, literature, and thought. He wrote A Prayer, which became a message of hope for thousands, but he is best known for Desiderata, which he wrote for himself, "because it counsels those virtues I felt myself most in need of." Max included this work as part of a personal Christmas greeting in 1933, and Desiderata's power and appeal have continued to reach out to and significantly affect readers ever since. He died in 1945.
