Poem: 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 to 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 that even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Something to read and consider.
What does success mean to you?
