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.

Its silence when your speech would hurt.

Politeness when your neighbour's curt.

Its loyalty when duty calls,

Its courage when disaster falls.

Its patience when the hours are long.

Its found in laughter and a song.

Its 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.
