People - By Mother Theresa

Dear Children, Here is poem for you, by Mother Theresa.
With love, Amma - Naana

"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 frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank ,anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could 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've got, anyway."
