On the wall of Mother Teresa’s children’s home in Calcutta was found the following inscription:
People are unreasonable, illogical and self centered
LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfishness.
DO GOOD ANYWAY.
If you are successful you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow.
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable.
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
people really need help but may attach you if you help them.
HELP THEM ANYWAY.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY.
