The Quote of the 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 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! 

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
