How do you define success?

“To laugh often and love much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of one’s critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to give of one’s self, 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 even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
