“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.
– Bessie Stanley (and Ralph Waldo Emerson)

“Sharing, informing, enlightening, encouraging, impacting, empowering, igniting, uplifting (and perhaps even) inspiring”
