Success
by Emily Dickinson
Success is counted sweetest By those who ne'er succeed. To comprehend a nectar Requires sorest need.
Not one of all the purple host Who took the flag to-day Can tell the definition, So clear, of victory,
As he, defeated, dying, On whose forbidden ear The distant strains of triumph Break, agonized and clear!

When Marcus Aurelius said, "When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love." And when Mary Oliver said, "Just to be alive, on this fresh morning." And when Kahlil Gibran said, "To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving."

One of the most significant people in Emily Dickinson’s life was her sister Lavinia. Born two years after Emily, on February 28, 1833, the two were raised as if of an age. [...] Different as they were, the sisters were extremely close. While Austin was often exasperated by his youngest sister, the poet called her bond with Lavinia “early, earnest, indissoluble.” Indeed, from young womanhood, Emily depended upon Vinnie’s physical presence when engaged in social activities [...] As she neared age thirty, the reclusive poet admitted, “Vinnie has been all, so long, I feel the oddest fright at parting with her for an hour, lest a storm arise, and I go unsheltered.” [...] Vinnie’s pride in her brilliant sister was as strong as her devotion to protecting her. [...] When Emily died in May 1886, Vinnie burned her sister’s correspondence, as requested, but to her amazement discovered hundreds of poems about which Emily had given no instructions. Determined to share these with the world, Vinnie spent the next thirteen years successfully urging and cajoling others – Susan Dickinson, Mabel Loomis Todd, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, the publishers Roberts Brothers – to publish her sister’s poems and letters. Without what Emily called Vinnie’s “inciting voice,” we would know little or nothing of Dickinson’s great lyric poetry. - The Emily Dickinson Museum
