What is success?

27 Feb

To laugh often and much, to win respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn appreciation of the honest critics and endure betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find 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. That is to have succeeded.

– Ralph Waldo  Emerson
