Success

To laugh often and much;  To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;  To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;  To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;  To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;  To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded“.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
