in life, there are some truths...

...and of those truths, this must be my favorite:

‎"To laugh often & much, to win the respect of intelligent people & the affection of children. To earn the appreciation of honest critics & endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others and to leave the world a bit better ... whether it be by a healthy child or a garden patch ... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - THIS is to have succeeded"

by Ralph W Emerson
