Definition of a Successful Life

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.


-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing."

~Abraham Lincoln
