You and God

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of being selfish, and having 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 frank, people may cheat you; Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone may try to destroy overnight; Build anyway.

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 have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, It's between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
