A GREAT quote

I just remembered this quote that I in the past tagged onto the bottom of my emails.  Don't be surprised if it shows up there again very soon.

"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 leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; 
to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. 
THIS is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
