Success 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.

I love this poem.
