People Are Unreasonable
    People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
love them anyway.

     If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish,
ulterior motives;
do good anyway.

     The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow;
do good anyway.

     Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable;
be honest and frank anyway.

     What you spend years building
may be destroyed overnight;
build anyway.

     Give the world the best you have
and you’ll get kicked in the teeth;
give the best you’ve got anyway.

On the walls of Shishu Bhavan,
Mother Teresa’s children’s home in Calcutta
