Do It Anyway

- by 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 and full of contempt;
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 your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
