Thoughtful Friday No. 48

"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, a garden patch or
redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
