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 even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.
