words of wisdom
The final analysis
People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others may destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today will often by forgotten;
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have and it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
- Mother Teresa
