The following was written by Harry
to be read during his funeral service.

Setting Your Sights

As I look back over my life, I can see so many ways in which
I could have done things better than I did, and I certainly wish
I'd learned a lot of things sooner than I did.

And yet I have enjoyed a wonderful life. I'm married to the
ideal woman. I have had the good fortune to be associated in
business with highly competent, honest, compatible people.
I've had a book that was #1 on the best-seller list, and others
that sold well above average. I've had first-class friends in many
different areas of my life. I've been able to live in three countries and
enjoy the best the world has to offer. I was honored to be the
Presidential candidate of the Libertarian Party.

To have made so many mistakes, and yet to have had so much.
It proves that you don't have to be perfect to succeed.

When I die (if ever), I'd like the epitaph on my tombstone to read:

"I didn't do everything I wanted to do,
I didn't become everything I wanted to be,
But because I aimed for the stars,
I reached the top of the world."

I don't advise being careless or sloppy. I do advise that you
hold fast to your beliefs and act in the best way you know how--
but then forgive yourself whenever you fail to measure up to
your standards.

You will never be perfect. But you can be free and happy.

I hope you make it.

~Harry Browne
