People are often unreasonable, illogical and selfish. 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. Be successful anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building someone may 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 just may never be enough. Give the world the best you have anyway. You see in the final analysis, it's all between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
--Mother Theresa
