anyway

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 could destroy overnight;

build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;

be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;

do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and it may never be enough;

give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
