“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.”
