Success

Success is speaking words of praise,
In cheering other people's ways.
In doing just the best you can,
With every task and every plan.

 

It's silence when your speech would hurt,
Politeness when your neighbor's curt.
It's deafness when the scandal flows,
And sympathy with others' woes.

 

It's loyalty when duty calls,
It's courage when disaster falls.
It's patience when the hours are long,
It's found in laughter and in song.

 

It's in the silent time of prayer,
In happiness and in despair.
In all of life and nothing less,
We find the thing we call success.
