Ralph Waldo Emerson, “This Is To Have Succeeded”

“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 to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate be auty; 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 that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
