Words of Compassion

“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.”

— from “The Paradoxical Commandments” by Dr. Kent M. Keith, seen inscribed on the walls of Mother Teresa’s children’s home in Calcutta
