Succeed

"To Laugh often and love much, 
to win respect of intelligent persons
and the affection of children;
to ear the approbation of honest critics
and to 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 that even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived --
This is to have succeeded."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
