To have succeeded

I love this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, it creates much room for thought and inspiration. I hope you will find it to inspire and add richness to your day.

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 even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.
