A Waldo


To laugh often and much

to win the respectof 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.

That is to have succeeded …….

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
