What is Success?

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.
