Express your voice, no matter what

People are often unreasonable, 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 friends;

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 your best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;

it was never between you and them anyway.

~ Mother Teresa
