Success

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and 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 as breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

--- Ralph Waldo Emerson
