People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered,
LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you are successful, you win false and true enemies,
SUCCEED ANYWAY.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow,
DO GOOD ANYWAY.
If you are honest people may cheat you,
BE HONEST ANYWAY.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight,
BUILD ANYWAY.
If you find serenity and happiness people may be jealous,
BE HAPPY ANYWAY.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough,
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU”VE GOT ANYWAY.
In the end it is between you and God,
IT WAS NEVER ABOUT YOU AND THEM ANYWAY.
-From a sign in Mother Teresa’s children’s home
