Emerson on the Way to Live
"When you were born, you were crying, and everyone else was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you're the one smiling and everyone else is crying." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The quote you have under Emerson is my translation of words that my Hindi teacher told us when I was in Grade 8 (in 1960s). That was his parting advise to us, I translated that for my American Born Son in early 90s, he even had that in his speech in 6th grade.
I have also included those words in my articles, memos for many years.
I don't have problem with you publishing quote ("Things that are given away are never lost") But I believe it is not Emerson's quote (I beleive my teacher was translating from Hindi Poem)
Neverthless it is a good thought to share.
