Success in life

I ran across this great quote:

To laugh often and love much;

to win the respect of intelligent persons

and the affection of children;

to earn the approbation of honest critics

and to endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty;

to find the best in others;

to give of oneself;

to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,

a garden patch or redeemed social condition;

to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;

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

this is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I like it a lot. Makes me want to be successful in life.
