He has achieved success
who has lived well,
laughed often, and loved much;

who has enjoyed the trust of pure women,

the respect of intelligent men and
the love of little children;

who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;

who has left the world better than he 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 has always looked for the best in others
and given them the best he had;

whose life was an inspiration;
whose memory a benediction.

- Bessie Anderson Stanley, 1904
