Mother Teresa of Kolkata – TRANSCEND Media Service

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.

~Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives.

~Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies.

~Succeed anyway.

The good you do may be forgotten tomorrow.

~Do good anyway.

Honesty and openness make you vulnerable.

~Be honest and open anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

~Build anyway.

People you really want to help may attack you if you help them.

~Help them anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt.

~Give the world your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It has never been between you and them.
