A Little Poem

By Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self centered,
Love them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of having 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, some 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’s between you and God,
It was never between you and them anyway.
