    If he would be alive I would tell him:
    a. If a worst is, that man knows, it is ridiculous to be scared of unknown.
    b. If a best is, that man knows, it is smart to be scared of unknown.
    The question is: ''Who is happier? ''
    Dear Ralph Waldo Emerson!
    In spite you were b. and I am a. I consider myself happier than you were. That is why I share and like much all your minor verse

    No finer Poet in the World. Emerson is one of a kind, a unique, eloquent Master of the Word and Phrase

To Laugh Often And Much

To laugh often and much;?
to win the respect of the 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,
