Elliott Erwitt, Magnum Photographer, in his studio, Central Park West, NYC, USA


To laugh often and much; To win the respect of 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, or a redeemed social condition;

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

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
