    "To laugh often and much;
    to win the respect of intelligent people
    and the affection of children;
    to earn 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;
    to know even one life has breathed easier
    because you have lived;
    this is to have succeeded."
