Mother Teresa quote


“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 successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy 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, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God; It was never between you and them anyway.” ~ Mother Teresa

  1. Thank you for sharing this quote – I will hold it dear to my heart. If we feel unappreciated, unrecognized, or left out in our efforts to strengthen our family, relationships, or our local community, we need only know that the glory doesn’t belong to us anyway. Sometimes it’s easier than others to stand strong in that belief isn’t it? When one thinks about it, however, it’s far easier to carry on in ones’ altruistic efforts, knowing that we need not please ANY mortal person. That makes me smile.
