People are often unreasonable, illogical, and
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,
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
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could
If you find serenity and happiness, they may
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have though 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.
Poem attributed to Dr. Kent M. Keith
and inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa's Children's Home in Calcutta.
