Contents read:

"To live content with small means.

To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion…

To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich…

To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly…

To listen to stars, birds, babes & sages with open heart…

To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never…

In a word, to let the Spiritual, unbidden & unconscious, 

grow up through the common…

This is to be my symphony."
