Success

Someone posted a quote on Facebook this weekend that I absolutely love. It immediately became one of my favorite quotes. It's awesome and I thought I'd share it...along with a photo from my visit to Yosemite a few weeks ago and one of my favorite spots in the park. Enjoy...


"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."

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love the quote, but the photo from Yosimite is lovely. It is one on my favorite places in the States.
