Life’s Little Lessons – Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable, illogical
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;
If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone
Could destroy overnight
If you find serenity and happiness,
They may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
People will often forget tomorrow;
Do well anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
