L. desiderata – something desired

in decision analysis – the desired characteristics of a decision making algorithm

and, of course, the famous poem by Max Ehrman – go placidly amid the noise and haste ...

some excerpts from the poem which reflect the ideals of Desiderata Software:

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism

And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
