Do It Anyway
by Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable,
illogical, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of being,
selfish and having 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,
could be destroyed overnight.
Build it anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they 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 enough.
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see in the final analysis,
it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.
