by: Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
