A Pearl of Knowledge

3“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,
Others 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.”

-Mother Teresa of Calcutta
