Inspirational gift for her, Emerson success quote, Blue Ridge Mountains, To laugh often and much... this is to have succeeded

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


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.

This popular quote is commonly attributed to Emerson, although it has never been located in any of his work.
