“That man is a success – who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of friends and family and the love of children, who has accomplished his task, who leaves the world better than he found it, who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it, who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.”
