"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're successful, you win false friends and make true enemies;
try to succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow;
be good anyway.
Honesty and frankness will get you nowhere; they make you vulnerable;
be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend days building may be destroyed overnight;
do it anyway.
People really need help but they attack you if you try to help them;
Give the world the best you have and you get kicked in the mouth;
give the world the best you have anyway."
Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
