AS MUCH AS YOU CAN – Poetry, by Costantine Cavafy

AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

asMuch.1.1And if you can’t shape your life the way you want, at least try as much as you can not to degrade it, by too much contact with the world, by too much activity and talk. Try not to degrade it by dragging it along, taking it around and exposing it so often, to the daily silliness of social events and parties, until it comes to seem a boring hanger-on.
