Title: To Have Succeeded

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 little better place than when we found it, whether by a healthy child, a garden path or a redeemed social condition;

to know even one life breathed easier because you lived.

This is to have succeeded.
