"to laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest criticism and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty and find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded." ~ ralph waldo emerson


  1. Love this quote! It's so fitting considering my post for the day about living your life with a purpose. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Beautiful Emerson quote!! Two of my favorites by him are:

    "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail"

    "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not"
