You and God

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centred;

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 unfaithful 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 creating others could destroy overnight;

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today will often be forgotten;

Be good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God:

It was never between you and them anyway.


Mother Teresa of Calcutta
