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.
This is to have succeeded!
Is that the best quote? I think it is! I found it on Charlie Engle's website, after reading an article in Runner's World about how Charlie went from alcoholic/drug addict to celebrated ultra-runner -- yeah, that makes him my kind of guy! You can check out the article here.
Make it a fabulous day, friends!
