Blog Your Blessing : Success


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 little 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 the meaning of success.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson-

Emerson said some great things -- I enjoyed reading it. Come see my BYB.

Thanks for highlighting Emerson's poem today. Just the right words. Success is living compassion.

*Smiles* I actually have this written in the front of my agenda at work... which comes home with me... to remind me of what's important. :)

I love the photo you chose to accompany the wise words of Emerson.

Once of my favorite poems. Thank you for sharing it!!

Blue Panther said...

Those are beautiful words indeed and after reading them I felt that I must try harder to incorporate some of those things in my life.

Have a great week ahead!

I feel compelled to assure you that giving up on blogging altogether (as a result of this unfortunate situation) would be a huge mistake. I hope you’ll reconsider.
