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 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 that even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be.
