An inspiring poem

To laugh often and to love much;

to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

to earn appreciation of honest critics;

to appreciate beauty;

to find the best in others;

to leave the world a better place that we found it;

whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;

to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.

This is to have succeeded.
