Here is a popular quote on Success...although, no one can say for sure who first wrote it. Some say it was Ralph Waldo Emerson and others say that it was a woman named Bessie Stanley who penned it back in 1905. The one below had been altered from the original. Either way, it is a great quote.
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.
