That woman is a success

That woman is a success

Who has lived well,

Laughed often and loved much;


Who has gained the respect of intelligent

men and the love of children;


Who has filled her niche and

accomplished her task;


Who leaves the world better than she found it,

Whether by an improved poppy,

A perfect poem, or a rescued soul;


Who has never lacked appreciation of

Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;


Who looked for the best in others.

And gave the best she had.


Bessie Anderson Stanley (written 1904)
