Written on the walls

Teresa of Calcutta
On a wall in one of St Teresa’s Children’s Homes:

♥ People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centred; forgive them anyway.
♥ If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind
♥ If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine 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, will often be forgotten; do good anyway.
♥ Give the best you have, and it will never be enough; give your best anyway.
♥ In the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.

Have a great weekend – shobana

  1. Profound wisdoms, Shobana. It’s really between a person and a higher power. Never give up your goodness because others don’t appreciate it, or can’t match up to it. If we can’t beat them, then NO need to join them. 🙂
