Finding Inspiration: Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is your definition of 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 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 one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."


-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
