Leave The World Richer

img_1991

“Your ambition should be to get as much life out of living as you possibly can, as much enjoyment, as much interest, as much experience, as much understanding. Not simply to be what is generally called ‘a success.’ I am inclined to think that being a success is tied up very closely with being one’s own kind of individual. Success must include two things: the development of an individual to his utmost potentiality and a contribution of some kind to one’s world. Mozart, who was buried in a pauper’s grave, was one of the greatest successes we know of, a man who in his early thirties had poured out his inexhaustible gift of music, leaving the world richer because he had passed that way. To leave the world richer–that is the ultimate success.” #eleanorroosevelt #youlearnbyliving #book #books #library #innergrowth #purpose #liveunscripted
