A Phenomenal Philosophy For Life!

Don’t you just love going through an old file, frantically looking for a document that refuses to be found and, instead, finding a gem of a quote that makes you just sit and think? Here is what popped out yesterday.

That man 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 his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world a better place than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacks appreciation for earth’s beauty or fails to express it; who looks for the best in others and gives the best he has.

This sounds like something JFK would have said or maybe Reagan. It’s irrelevant to me who said this. The point is-if you can attach the words to your life then you have been successful and I dare say, happy.

I want to make one more point about this saying. The phrase filled his (and of course her)  niche and accomplished his (her) task has great meaning for me. After struggling to find my niche I found it and it gave me trememdous peace of mind. Too many people search for that their whole lives and never find it. And sometimes the search is made more difficult due to one’s own ego. But I’ll leave that for another day.

The Final Thought: “Don’t let your brain write checks your body can’t cash.” Unknown
