“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.”
by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Short and sweet!
