Do It Anyway


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 and frank,
people may cheat on 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.


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
