Success is not to be pursued ; it is to be attracted by the person you become.
Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
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.
