... this is to have succeeded.

Half Dome, the symbol of Yosemite.


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 to to 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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
