Shirt and Skirt Markets dialogue - Is the Marcus Aurelius quote in Black Sails a rewrite? - Movies & TV Stack Exchange This is perhaps not the best place for this Q, but I'm not able to find any site more suitable.

Although he copyrighted it in 1927, he distributed copies of it without a required copyright notice during 1933 and c. 1942, thereby forfeiting his US copyright.[1] Largely unknown in the author's lifetime, its use in devotional and spoken word recordings in 1960 and 1971 called it to the attention of the world.[2] History[edit] Desiderata Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. Max Ehrmann, 1948 The 1948 version was in the form of one long prose paragraph, so earlier and later versions were presumably also in that form.
