Tom Brady shared a passage from Ralph Waldo Emerson the day after Gisele Bündchen’s interview with Vanity Fair dropped, explaining her divorce from the NFL legend.
Brady shared the poem mentioning «false friends» Thursday morning.
«What is success? Laugh often and a lot; Win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; Win the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; Appreciate beauty to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better off, whether it be with a healthy child, a garden, or redeemed social status; to know that even a life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is having succeeded!
