36th Days of Lent - Thought of the day
A Note on the Wall in the room of Mother Teresa
People are 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;
be successful anyway.
What you spent years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, others 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 your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
