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 even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit

that you must not quit.

to please himself or others.

Studies indicate that the one quality
all successful people have is persistence.
They’re willing to spend more time
accomplishing a task
and to perservere in the face
of many difficult odds.
There’s a very positive relationship
between people’s ability
to accomplish any task
and the time they’re willing
to spend on it.

— Dr. Joyce Brothers
