"Everyone at some point of time needs self realization.. needs advice to live by,

I make it a point to live by this excerpt...

these words by Ralph Waldo Emerson, gives the secret to a very successful life in a nutshell. Read it and ponder over it."




To laugh often and much, 


to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children,


to love animals, 


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,


to know even one life breathed easier because you lived....





This is to have succeeded...
