do in anyway.

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 true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest 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 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.

~Mother Teresa


  1. This is one of our family's favorite quotes! So very inspiring!

  2. This is what following Jesus is all about, isn't it!? These words have always encouraged my heart to keep on keepin' on...keep on doing what Jesus keep on doing it anyway. Thanks for bringing my focus back to where it belongs.

    Thank you, too, for the wonderful words of encouragement you always leave behind on my blog. God has used YOU to keep me "doing what I do" more times than you will ever know. Thank you, sweet friend.


  3. Oh I love that last line, so true! Thanks for sharing, I've never read this from her before.

  4. One of my all time favorites! Always nice to hear again! THANKS!
