One of the easiest ways to enjoy greater peace is by making the choice to let other people walk their own paths rather than engaging in their problems.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

Wear Sunscreen or the Sunscreen Speech are the common names of an essay titled “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young” written by Mary Schmich and published in the Chicago Tribune as a column in 1997, but often erroneously attributed to a commencement speech by author Kurt Vonnegut. Both its subject and tone are similar to the 1927 poem “Desiderata“. The most popular and well-known form of the essay is the successful music single “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)“, released in 1998, by Baz Luhrmann.
