My favorite Poem:


People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Love and forgive them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spent years building, they may destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow top dogs;
Fight for some underdogs anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous and scorn;
Be joyous anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you help them;
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth;
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.
