Thought for the Day~Success

One of my favorite quotes on:

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 or a redeemed social condition

to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
