"Abban vagyunk szabadok, amiben kontrollált formában válunk alkalmassá arra,
hogy az adottságainkat, készségeinket megéljük."

discovering Emerson again

"To laugh often and love much;
To win respect of intelligent people
And the affection of children;

(photo by Rabbi Yaakov Asher Sinclair)
To earn the approbation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To give one’s self;

To leave the world a little better,
Whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch,
Or redeemed social condition;
To have played and laughed with enthusiasm

(Tonya Crawford)
And sung with exultation;
To know even one life has breathed easier
Because you have lived…
This is to have succeeded."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
