Quote I’m thinking about (courtesy of Jeff Bezos): 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. Bessie A. Stanley (often misattributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson)
