Inspiration: *This Is To Have Succeeded*


"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 to 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 that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."~~Ralph Waldo Emerson~~

Have a beautiful and blessed day!

  2. Huge Fan of Emerson. Thanks for this post. Feeling very down today and I need to read and reread this a few times. (and definitely pass on the JCrew sales!)
