Mother and her daughter

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to hear 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
