Success, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Calligraphy Art Plaques, Inspirational Gifts

signed print



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. Emerson

Artist’s Comments:

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882, minister, lecturer, and poet, was one of America's most influential authors and thinkers. The letters in the word Success, punctuated with gold, are in the color of money, in contrast to Emerson's definition of true success.
