People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind 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.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the best you've got anyway.
-- Mother Teresa
