Cool Morning Poem !

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.

That is to have succeeded .......

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
