“People are often unreasonable and self centered: forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives: be kind anyways.
If you’re successful, you’ll win some false friends and some true enemies: succeed anyway.
If you’re honest and frank, people may cheat you: but be honest anyway.
What you spend years building, someone can 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, its between you and God, it was never between you and them anyway . . .”
