New Year's Thoughts



"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 even one life
has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."

                         RW Emerson

You can check a few of those off your list already, my friend.

May they all be returned to you tenfold.
