Mother Teresa of Calcutta:

This is written on the wall in  Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta: Perhaps it should also be under your roof and on your fridge! 

People are often unreasonable, irrational 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others would destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have , and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
