“The definition of success"
"To laugh often and much;
  • To win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;
  • To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
  • To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one’s self;
  • To leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
  • To have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation;
  • To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
  • This is to have succeeded."
  • - Ralph Waldo Emerson
