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." 

DAY 186:  No song lyric today, just a beautiful quote that I lifted from a friend's Facebook profile.  Apparently no one knows the actual source of the quote, though it is often inaccurately attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Well ... whoever said it or wrote it ... wonderful words!
