People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; 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 may destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
Do good today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be good enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is all between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.
— “The Final Analysis” is a version of the “Paradoxical Commandments” by Kent M. Keith
