Anyway

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'll win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
People love underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Follow some underdog anyway.
What you spend 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 that you have and you may be kicked in the
teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Lovely thoughts. We need a dose of this often, not only every now and then.

As Dr. Bill said "accentuate the positive".

Thanks mc

Thank you for appreciating this. I do not know who wrote it. I received it from a very dear friend of mine.

Marylynn, I received an e-mail copy with lovely pictures. If anyone can tell me how to convert that into a link, I'll be glad to make it available to all.
