The Goal of Life

From the Omaha Daily Bee, January 18, 1914. By Grace Sorenson.

I call it not success
To gain a fortune or
To win renown, unless
In climbing upward thou
Hast left a trail behind
Of happiness for those
Along the way. If greed
Has been thy only aim,
Then thou hast missed the goal
Of life, while he who treads
The lowly paths and helps
His fellowmen receives
A greater joy than thou
Canst find in wealth or fame.
