I just needed to be reminded by this quote today … yeah one of those days. Whenever I am mad at someone, which is usually, when someone successfully takes away a little peace of mind from mighty me, I read this and feel better.
I do not agree with this quote whole heartedly, but it still soothes me and calms me down and instantly starts making me feeling better. The one part which bugs me about this quote is saying that people are often unreasonable…., I do not agree with that. There are a lot of unreasonable people around, but that would still make them of the size of a mole as compared to mountainous ethical, honest and reasonable people in this world.
People are often (sometimes) 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 just never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and God"S";
It was never between you and them anyway.
