To Laugh Often And Much

To laugh often and much;â?¨
to win the respect of the intelligent peopleâ?¨
and the affection of children;â?¨
to earn the appreciation of honest criticsâ?¨
and endure the betrayal of false friends;â?¨
to appreciate beauty;â?¨
to find the best in others; â?¨
to leave the world a bit betterâ?¨
whether by a healthy child,â?¨a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;â?¨
to know that one life has breathed easier â?¨
because you lived here.â?¨
This is to have succeeded.
