David brought this to my attention today. I really appreciated it, so I thought I'd post it here.
from Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
someone could destroy overnight.
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
and it may never be enough;
Give the best you've got anyway.
it is between you and God;
it was never between you and them anyway.
