 Every writer worth his salt

Of failure, because he
Knows he could have done
Things better.

Are always pleased
With themselves.

SUBMERGE IN NATURE

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is a society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but nature more.

RICHEST MAN

That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.

OFFENCE

DEFINITION OF SUCCESS IS HERE

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 been breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

-          Ralph Waldo Emerson
