A Brazilian friend of mine sent the below.  It brought me a laugh. So I translated it to English hoping it would bring you a smile as well.  Have a beautiful day filled with moments of love and contentment.

Success is:

At age 2 success is: to be able to walk.


At age 4 success is: not to pee in your pants.


At age 12 success is: to have friends.


At age 18 success is: to have a driver’s license.

At age 20  success is: to make love.


At age 35 success is: to make money

At age 50 success is: to make money.

At age 60 success is: to make love.

At age 70 success is: to have a driver’s license.

At age 75 success is: to have friends.


At age 80 success is: not to pee in your pants.


At age 90 success is: to be able to walk.

We don’t take anything from this life.  Why waste time with lies and lack of love? We all have the same destiny regardless of our finances and social status.  Love, play, forgive, be happy and make others happy.

To laugh often and much…

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…to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded!

Ralph Waldo Emerson,  (1803 – 1882) whose original profession and calling was as a Unitarian minister, left the ministry to pursue a career in writing and public speaking. Emerson became one of America’s best known and best loved 19th century figures.
