Ralph Waldo Emerson?

Posted by Picasa
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.
This is to have succeeded.
--- inaccurately attributed to
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This was part of a presentation I gave, at the bottom of this slide was another quote, "To steal from one is plagarism to steal from many is research...."
