People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centred;  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, 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.
This poem was written by Mother Teresa and is engraved on the wall of her home for children in Calcutta:
