To Laugh Often And Much – Poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To laugh often and much;

to win the respect of the 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 that one life has breathed easier 

because you lived here.

This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

art is the wisp of the wind, stillness of the night, beginning of a rainbow, end of a life, just god talkin to yea! an old italian man growing a fig tree, touching a leaf, to make sure it is alright. frank salvatore crescenti

I can’t tell you what art does and how it does it, but I know that often art has judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent and shown to the future what the past suffered, so that it has never been forgotten. John Berger
