Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much

Classic Quote Plaques

Classic quote on a classy and vintage style plaque, perfect for a housewarming gift for any home. Get one here.

From the 1904 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.
