What Constitutes Success?

He [She] has achieved success who has lived well,

laughed often and loved much;

who has gained the respect of intelligent men

and the love of little children;

who has filled his [her] niche and accomplished his [her]task;

who has left the world better than he [she] found it,

whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;

who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty

or failed to express it;

who has always looked for the best in others

and given them the best he [she] had;

whose life was an inspiration;

whose memory a benediction.
