The more I learn about Mother Teresa and read what she had to say, the more admirable she becomes. Here is one of her sayings I recently found (and I admit, I copied it without permission, but I’m pretty sure it’s public domain. Sometimes stuff is too good to not share!). Here’s what she wrote, and this is something I aim to live by:

People can be unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, hidden motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful you will win some false friends and 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, some may be jealous;

Seek happiness 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, at the end, it is between you and God;

It was never between you and them… anyway.

~Mother Teresa
