      "Success"

      by Ralph Waldo Emerson

      What is 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;ย  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.
