Sunday Citar


Today is my first time to participate in Tabitha's Sunday Citar, so I am starting with my favorite quote that always sits at the bottom of my blog. Hope you like it, it has always spoken to me.

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a 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. - Emerson
