To Have Succeeded

To laugh often and love much:
To win respect of intelligent people
And the affection of children;
To earn the approbation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To give one's self;
To leave the world a little better,
Whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch,
Or redeemed social condition;
To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
And sung with exultation;
To know even one life has breathed easier
Because you have lived...
This is to have succeeded.
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

In memory of John Haigh, one of the best, funniest leaders I ever had the privilege to work with. John loved hiking, youth hostels and orange hats and introduced them all to 4th Ashby. We celebrated his love of all 3 each March.
