Do it anyway




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


If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.


If you are successful you will win some false friends and 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.


Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
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.



Quote from Mother Teresa

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
マザーテレサさんの言葉は、奥が深いですね。
他人に対しては、ごまかしがきくが、
自分に対しては、ごまかしがきかない。
正直な心でいる事。
そして、時は、建物を破壊するが、
精神は、決して滅びない。
とにかく、ベストをつくそう。

暖かい日になって来たね。
一雨ごとに春の足跡が、近づいてきます。
ゆっくりと、自分のペースで、無理しないで
頑張って下さいね。:D
