People are often unreasonable…

I‘ve had the following quote hanging on my wall for almost 20 years now, and it fills me with inspiration every time I read it. Often attributed to Mother Teresa, it was originally part of a talk given by Kent Keith. Regardless of its origins, I appreciate this, I hope it inspires you as well.

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
