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;
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight;
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
