"What Is Success?"
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 the beauty and 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 situation;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"When health is absent wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied."
