Beautiful, simple words of wisdom from a noble prize winner…. Mother Teresa.
I was going through the Biography of Mother Teresa, and could not go past this passage. Felt the need to share with those who would not have had the privilege of reading the works of this lady.
I found this little passage great to reflect on ….. Be enlightened, find inner peace & serenity, and hope it can help some out there in a similar way.
It is amazing how the switch takes place within each of us by the second. When we are well grounded with steadfast principles that we could hang on to nothing will swing it either way. Enjoy the extract ……….
“People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centred ; 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.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.” – Mother Teresa
Simple basics to lay that platform as we journey through life. Cheers David Nair
