I’ve mentioned before that I collect quotes. I have this little notebook that I write them all down in. There are bits of plays, poems, lines from psalms…whatever. I may go years without adding to my notebook, then suddenly I fill a dozen pages. I have scraps of paper stuffed in my desk, my purse, all over, just waiting to be added. I was looking through my notebook last night and this one stood out. I thought I’d share it with all of you.
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may try to cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For, you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway. ~Mother Theresa
