I could get behind this quote:

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


  1. Totally freakin awesome. LOVE it.

  2. Correction! @Dean_Frey linked this website, stating that this quote is mis-attributed to Emerson, thanks to (groan) Dear Abby. http://emerson.tamu.edu/Ephemera/Success.html Thanks Dean.
