The meaning of success
It seems to me that success these days is measured in terms of material gain and cheap celebrity status though, with my penchant for the deep and meaningful, I thought I would share a poignant definition of the word success. Here goes: –
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 that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
So there it is.
