By Ralph Waldo Emerson
'To laugh often and much
To win the affection of intelligent people
And the affection of childrne;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics,
And endure the false betrayal of 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.'
