Today I have a lazy day. Thus I’ll benefit from the work of others, and present another poem, this time by Mother Teresa. Enjoy.
(To be honest, I never was interested too much about Mother Teresa and her life in the past, but probably it’d be a good idea to learn more about her…)
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.
This struck me as a very powerful poem that says more about living life the right way than many long theories.
Somehow it occurs to me that she hits a quite fundamental truth here, even if you do not belief in god in a way she did.
Cheers and have a happy day,
