Measuring success


How do you measure success?

To laugh often and much;

To win the affection 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 redeemed social condition or a job well done;

To know one other life has lived because you lived ___

This is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson end48
