- To laugh often and much
- To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of young 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
Ask me and I can give at least one relevant example from my life for every every single point mentioned!
