"Do It Anyway"

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

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, alterior 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, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

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

It was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Teresa


"What our group did was out of the ordinary; we crossed the line of giver and receiver to be at the same level as everyone else. Once we stepped beyond the typical ideas of charity and service work, we were able to give and receive from each other."
