25 More Lessons (I've) Learned
38. The Secret to Success
(How to Become Rich and Famous)

Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your photographic empire, but if you keep at it, your fortune, fame and legend are all bound to grow—even if their bounty only slowly grows solely in your own mind.

Besides, as long as you’re having fun at what you do, who really cares what others think about what you think about what you do. Moreover, the greatest wealth money cannot measure.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and 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
