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 the 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.
