Key Points from Book: Start Something That Matters

To laugh often and love much
To win the respect of intelligent people
And the affection of people
To earn appreciation of honest critics
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
-Elisabeth-Anne Anderson Stanley-
