KCT Thought of the Week, September 30, 2016

To laugh often and love much:

to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children:

to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends:

to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition:

to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation:

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

this is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
