Thoughts for the day

Posted by wendyn on 3/25/01 at 23:29 (042461)

This appeared in a column in our paper this moring. It was a poem that Mother Teresa hung in one of her ophanages but I don't know if she wrote it.

'People are unreasonable, illogical, self-centred...love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives...do good anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies...be successful anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow...do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable...be honest and frank anyway.
People love underdogs but will follow only top dogs...follow some underdog anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight...build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you try to help...help people anyway.
If you give the world the best you have, you may get kicked in the teeth...but give the world the best you have...anyway.'
