Poems about Life

It is a short and concise question that haunts many. Many people, don't set any goals for themselves and succeed at very little. Others, set goals that are unrealistic and then are let down when not achieved.

And, there would be less stress felt! We hope you enjoy this short poem which is full of concise wise words for you to reflect upon.


Poet: Ralph Waldo Emerson

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 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 even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.
