More About Max Ehrmann

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Max Ehrmann was an attorney turned philosopher-poet who lived in Terre Haute, Indiana. He spent his life wrestling with the realities of making a living and following his personal calling to a life of poetry, literature, and thought. Ehrmann wrote A Prayer, which became a message of hope for thousands, but he is best known for Desiderata, which he wrote for himself, ?because it counsels those virtues I felt myself most in need of.? Ehrmann included this work as part of a personal Christmas greeting in 1933, and Desiderata's power and appeal have continued to reach out to and significantly affect readers ever since. Ehrmann died in 1945.

Max Ehrmann was born in 1872 and died in 1945.

Table version  Aug 17, 2006
This has always been my favorite poem and have 3 versions on my walls; however I have never had a hard copy version of this/I gave both that I ordered as gifts for the persons to have at different locations in their home or to take with them to enjoy/the illustrations are lovely and enchance the words beautifully/I would recommend this to everyone to have.

Scarce words - plentiful meaning  May 6, 2006
I do not have words for this book (No pun intended!)

Desiderata - an extremely moving book, is one of it's kind, in the truest sense of the word. It has words in the form of a poem and pictures depicted alongside of the words. Each picture is hardly a scrawl and the accompanying words are extremely simple, and yet together, they tell you so much of life and how to live it.

The utter simplicity of the pictures and the words is truly unparalleled and leaves a lasting impression on you.

Highly, highly, highly recommended.
Life---As it should be!  Dec 2, 2000
I have a copy of Desiderata, eighth edition, published by Brooke House, Los Angeles, illustrated by Emil Antonucci. I would like to order copies of this edition. Is that possible? Life's lessons have never been so simply and eloquently stated. So many of us need to be reminded!!!
The first hippie  Sep 14, 2000
I can say my favorite author ever. What a statement while at the same time writing a way of life.... I have his first novel ever published from 1898, signed! He was amazing.
Perspective on life's big picture  Aug 11, 2000
One of my favorite poems, a comforting and refreshing perspective on life's big picture. It purports to have been discovered in a church in the seventeenth century, but in fact it was written by a man named Max Ehrmann in the first third of this century. I have kept a copy around since elementary school (ever since I learned that Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, kept one in his office), and now keep one in my office at home and one at work.
