I absolutely love this poem. It’s so beautiful and inspiring. It has an elegant simplicity that is informed by the Truth it contains. This is a great one to share with kids and loved ones. If you contemplate how it really applies to your life, if you take a moment and commune with Mother Teresa, you will undoubtedly have a healing experience.
Take your time with these beautiful expressions of Love! Savor the Spirit!
Anyway by Mother Teresa
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 some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
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 your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
