To Have Succeeded

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 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)
