One of the best poems I've ever come across.

Every once in a while, you read something that touches you deeply and takes your breath away in awe. This weekend, I came across the below beautiful poem and was moved by it. It made me pause and reflect on the values I want to live by. I brought so much clarity in a fog of thoughts. I wish the same for you too. Check the incredible poem “Success” by Bessie Anderson Stanley.

“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. “
