When Adlai Stevenson died in 1965, a guest in his home found a copy of Desiderata near his bedside and discovered that Stevenson had planned to use it in his Christmas cards.

The Importance of Simplicity, Clarity, and Priority


Former Illinois Governor and presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson was guided by social, political, and religious ideals. But for him, having strong beliefs was easier than living up to them.


Adlai Stevenson II was an American politician known for his keen intellect, eloquent public speaking, and promotion of liberal causes in the Democratic Party. He served as the 31st Governor of Illinois and received the Democratic Party's nomination for president in 1952 and 1956. He sought the nomination a third time in 1960 but lost to John F. Kennedy, who later appointed Stevenson as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Stevenson died in 1965.
