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 to 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

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived.

 – Ralph Waldo Emerson
