Even if you cannot shape your life as you want it,
at least try this as much as you can;
do not debase it in excessive contact with the people,
in the excessive movements and talk.

Do not debase it by taking it,
dragging it often and exposing it
to the daily folly
of relationships and associations,
until it becomes burdensome as an alien life.

(1913)
