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.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, there may be jealously.
BE HAPPY ANYWAY.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
BE GOOD ANYWAY.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU HAVE ANYWAY.
(I got this from the Spring 2002 newsletter of More from Mitford.)
Have you guys ever read any of the Mitford books by Jan Karon? They are excellent. She has a new one coming out on May 27, I am so happy about that! Except that's the day after I leave for Ireland. But my mom can pick it up for me or something. Anyways, it's a wonderful series that is light and happy and funny and I love those kind of books.
Aargh, headaches... time to go try black bean chili. :-)
