Today’s quote (by Ralph Waldo Emerson, or not by Emerson) is well-known, and well-loved…but yet again it bears repeating, and holds new joys in its contemplation.
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.
~ Attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, but probably not by him.
