A life lived for God leaves lasting footprints

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;
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, there may be jealousy;
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 have anyway

You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway

- Mother Theresa
