“Do It Anyway” by Mother Teresa

January 17, 2010, by Rob, category blog

Mother TeresaI read this over at Marty Duren’s blog. I liked it so much I borrowed it from him.

The poem is by Mother Teresa. Read it and let me know what you think.

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,
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.

So, what do you think ?
