Written on the wall of Mother Teresa’s office in Calcutta was the following:
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centredLOVE THEM ANYWAYIf you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives,DO GOOD ANYWAYIf you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies,SUCCEED ANYWAYThe good you do will be forgotten tomorrow,DO GOOD ANYWAYHonesty and frankness make you vulnerable,BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAYWhat you spent years building may be destroyed overnight,BUILD ANYWAYPeople really need help but may attack you if you help them,HELP PEOPLE ANYWAYGive the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth,GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY.”
Wow. I have never heard that particular quote from Mother Teresa until today.
What do you think?
