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;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
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.
