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

♥ People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered; 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 week – shobana

  1. Thank you, Shobana for this post. Loved it. Incidentally, Mother Teresa was not of Kolkata or India or Macedonia, she belonged to the whole world.
