Do It Anyway

Mother Teresa

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 some true enemies;
        Succeed anyway.

        If  you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
        Be honest and frank 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 final analysis,
        it is between you and God;

        It was never between you and them anyway.

~ Mother Teresa
