The True Meaning of Success

The True Meaning of Success

To laugh often and love much; to win the
respect of intelligent person and the affection
of children; to earn the approbation of honest
citizens and endure the betrayal of false
friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best
in others; to give of one's self; to leave the
world a bit 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
