Mother Teresa of Calcuta

ANYWAY
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered,
LOVE THEM ANYWAY
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives,
DO GOOD ANYWAY
If you are successful, you win false and true enemies,
SUCCEED ANYWAY
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow,
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable,
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY
What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight,
BUILD 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 GOT ANYWAY

I loved Mother Teresa,and her writings,too.

Here`s my favorite part:

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