A SUCCESSFUL LIFE, ACCORDING TO RALPH WALDO EMERSON:
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and 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 I have lived. This is to have succeeded."
"The BEST leaders LISTEN more than they TALK."
After a few years in politics, I firmly believe this to be true.
