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 even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

BESSIE STANLEY
