As Much As You Can

 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 world,
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.
