Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much

As referenced in the last post, I thought that, today, it might be nice to include Mrs. Stanley’s poem, “Success”, in it’s entirety.  Again, more about her:  here

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;  
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;  
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;    
Who has left the world better than he found it, 
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;  
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; 
Whose life was an inspiration; 
Whose memory a benediction.
