A Successful Man
"That man is a success who has lived well,
laughed often and loved much; who has gained
the respect of intelligent men and the love of children;
who has filled his niche and accomplished his taks;
who leaves the world better than he found it; who has never
lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it.;
who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had."
