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;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere,
people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating,
others could destroy overnight;
Create anyway.

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

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

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

You see, in the final analysis.
it is between you and God;
It is never between you and them anyway.
