DO IT ANYWAY
~~Reportedly written on a wall in her home for children in Calcutta, India.~~
People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
BE HONEST AND SINCERE ANYWAY
What you spent years creating, others could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
BE HAPPY ANYWAY
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
IT WAS NEVER BETWEEN YOU AND THEM ANYWAY
