Flower with raindrops

Favorite quote of the day (Emerson)

"To laugh often, to win 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... To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!
- Emerson 

Emphasis mine...
