Emerson

Standard

“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

A great quote by a great man. I hold Emerson as a great philosophy. Independent and smart. I truly believe this is how to live your life.
