Speaking to me Today

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; 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 God; It was never between
you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa
