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, people 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 God;
It was never between you and them anyway
How you manage failure and difficulty will determine how well you succeed.
What you most resist doing or changing is the very thing you most need to work on.
You will never stay low if your thoughts are high and never stay high if your thoughts are low. Always remember that you can decide what you want to think about and that you will never rise higher than your highest thoughts.
Your concern should be to become sincere, not whether or not you are sincere.
