There is one more quotation which I would like to share with you all… This is the definition of Success by Ralph Wandoo (Waldo?) Emerson. This is by far the best definition that I have been able to find on the topic – Success.

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of 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 even one life breathed easier because you lived – That is to have succeeded in life” 


Seems convincing for me; have you guys anything to add?

  1. Pretty much everything,except the thing that we must live and not survive.We should exist to glorify what we do and make sure vice,isn’t considered wise 🙂

  2. i would love to add: To accept the divinity which exists within yourself. ~cheers~

  3. Vishesh – Who shouldn’t consider? To whom do you want to glorify? Are you addressing this to others or are you addressing them to yourself?

    In my opinion, both divinity and devil exist within us, Radha. The question is which do you believe in, and encourage.

  4. I agree!

  5. Thanks, Scietech. I thought it was a good definition for success. I happened to see it at a time when there was very less moral guidance and clarity! So I liked it instantly.
