To Have Succeeded
by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To laugh often and
love much;
to win the respect
of intelligent
persons and the
affection of children;
to earn the approbation
of honest citizens and
endure the betrayal
of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to give of one's self;
to leave the world
a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden
patch or a redeemed
social condition;
to have played and
laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation;
to know even one life
has breathed easier
because you have lived -
this is to have succeeded

Custom orders are welcome

We buy our raw wood from a local lumber jack and process it here in Troutman, NC.
Sometimes we may have cherry, cedar or tiger maple available. Feel free to ask.
