Quote of the day and words to live by

I’m in the middle of reading Turning Numbers into Knowledge: Mastering the Art of Problem Solving. At the end of each chapter is a relevant quote, and I found one that is definitely worth sharing.

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. — RALPH WALDO EMERSON


I can’t think of a more inspiring quote.
