I was looking through my Facebook profile, and I came across this quote that Ive had up for a while.  re-reading it, I’m reminded why I love it so much, and how no other quote better sums up how I try to live my life, and what I hope to get out of it at the end of my time on this rock…

“To laugh often and much,

to win the 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…

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

This is to have succeeded! ” -Emerson
