People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
    Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;   Be kind anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
    Be honest and frank anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
    Succeed anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
    Build anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
    Do good anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy 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, it is between you and God;
It was never between you
and them anyway.
