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.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies, succeed anyway.

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

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable, be honest and frank anyway.

What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight, build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you help them, help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get kicked in the teeth, give the world the best you have anyway.
