This is for anyone with anxiety/panic to read, it may help you feel a little better!

The following is a quotation (a favourite of mine from many, many years ago) which may indeed help people who are suffering from Panic, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Manic and many, many more. All comments are welcome. Enjoy!

Go placicly amid the noise and the haste, and
remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on
good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen
to others, even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are
vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may
become vain or bitter, for always there will be
greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however
humble; it is a real possession in the changing
fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the
world is full of trickery.  But let this not blind you
to what virtue there is; many persons strive for
high ideals, and everywhere life is full of

Be yourself, Especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of
all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial
as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully
surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shild you in
sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imagin-
ings.  Many fears are born of fatigue and lone-

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with

You ar a child of the universe, no less than the
trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt
the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you
conceive Him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in
the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful, Strive to be happy.

Wow!  Thanks bringing back good memories.  I recognize some of these passages from the song, "Aquarius", as part of the musical, "Hair".   What a sweet blast from the past.  Thanks for sharing.
