My favorite poem by “the man” Ralph Waldo Emerson.
What is Success?
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.
These are the benchmarks by which I measure the quality of my life! I have many, many things to be thankful for!

Success is not final,
failure is not fatal.
it is the courage to continue that counts.
So when you’re feeling discouraged, think about what this guy dealt with during WWII!
The dude totally persevered. For a really long time. Like 7 years or something.
