I live with this Belief:
People are often unreasonable, Illogical, & self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you selfish, ulterior motives;
Be Kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends & some true enemies,
If you are honest & frank, people may cheat you;
Be Honest & Frank anyway.
What you spend years building someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity & 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 & God.
Remember, good character pays at the end!
