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 Stanley (adapted; erroneously attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson)
it is the wee hours of the morn, 2am almost, i woke from a dream that disturbed me somehow once i opened my eyes it was clear to me as to when the bills will be paid spring time next year there is light at the end of the tunnel i must keep it at my grasp it has been there, but i've let it slip away so anyways, i will succeed again no doubt about it and with those thoughts i found the above quote and the ones below it its in the midst of the cancel trip that i sense anew again that it isn't so much the bills, but how i live my life the way in which i react to it as well do i dive into sulking or to i pick my ass up off the floor and forge ahead with a new perspective a new determination a new attitude towards money it is the thought by which i live that creates a better life a better reality anyways, these quotes on this entry are loftier perspectives for me to contemplate and embrace for the living in the moment i like Einstein's for they provoke thought they reflect true value i've written them down so i may see them time to time....
Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value.
The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty...The ordinary objects ofhuman endeavor--property, outward success, luxury--have always seemed to be contemptible.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.
i have felt for a long time now, that success is defined individually by one's own thoughts i know i have succeeded in life already in some ways now is the time to succeed in a different light...
