Be Kind 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 you..

Be honest and frank anyway.


What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight..

Build anyway.


If you find serenity and happiness, others may be jealous,

be happy anyway.


The good you do today, people will forget tomorrow..

Do good anyway.


Give the world the best you have and it may never be good enough..

Give the world the best you have anyway.


You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God.


It was never between you and "them" anyway.

~Mother Theresa.

What a great post. It reminds me of Pres. Monson's talk on Sat. "If you are too busy judging people, you have no time to love them." --Mother Theresa
