What is Success?

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;

To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, 

whether by a healthy child, a garden

patch redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier

because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded. 

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
