Quote of the Day

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
a false friend;
To appreciate beauty and 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
