inspiring quote

"to laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest criticism and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty and find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded." ~ ralph waldo emerson

wow, i just came across this when searching for a new quote to add to a page on the tranquil space website. isn't this truly what life is all about? a fabulous tool for reflection as we approach the weekend and celebration of fathers/positive parental figures everywhere.

may we all leave a positive mark in small, subtle ways every day.
