Powerful words ….

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 true enemies;
     succeed anyway.
If you are honest 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 the best you have, and it may never be enough;
     Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the end, it is between you and God;
     it was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Teresa
