Words to live by:
“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;
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.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
