Do It Anyway

For Rebekah and Tiffaney!


People are often unreasonable,illogical, and self-centered;Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,people may accuse you of being selfish,ulterior motives;Be kind anyway.

If you are honest and frank,people may cheat you;Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,some could 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.

-Mother Teresa
