Wise Words

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.

Thank you.

Strangely, I'm seeing Mother Teresa EVERYWHERE lately, and even joined in the fray myself a little inspired by all the quotes I'm finding.

I actually took out a book I haven't read in a long time: "Mother Teresa No Greater Love" which is a book of quotes.
