The quote reads, “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Also Read - The Ultra-Rich Club! Mark Zuckerberg’s Wealth Surpasses $100 Billion, Becomes World’s Third 'Centibillionaire' After Bezos & Gates

Bezos also got a lot of flak for posting the quote as it came at a time when Amazon has decided to stop construction of its two buildings post the Seattle city council members proposed a new corporate tax on large employers in Seattle for funding affordable housing projects. According to reports, the two buildings could have provided accommodation to at least 7,000 Amazon employees.
