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 honest and frank,
people may cheat you:
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous:
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow:
Do good anyway.

Give the world best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

- Mother Teresa -
