A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on appreciation, beauty, children, earth, failure, improvement, intelligence, laughter, life, love, men, poetry, respect, soul, success, and world

That a man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
