by Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable, illogical and
self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,
ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends
and some genuine enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy
overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be
jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten
tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be
enough; Give the world your best anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and
God; It was never between you and them anyway.
