What Is Success?

" . . . to appreciate beauty, 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."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just ran across Mr. Emerson's quote this evening. It's one that I have not seen in quite awhile. His definition of success seems quite appropriate for February. Success can be found in the small, everyday moments that seem to come and go so quietly.
