Success is doing the best you can
With every task and every plan.
Success is speaking words of praise
And cheering other people's ways.
It's silence when your speech would hurt,
Politeness when your neighbor's curt.
It's deafness when the scandal flows
And sympathy with another's woes.
It's loyalty when duty calls
And courage when disaster falls.
It's politeness when the hours are long,
It's found in laughter and in song.
It's in the silent time of prayer
And in happiness and in despair.
In all of life and nothing less
We find the thing we call success!
