Arrogance and wealth do not measure up to being humble and poor because in our humility and poverty we pay attention to what we are being taught and that is what makes us successful. In that place, we can find ourselves trusting God, and when we are trusting God, and we stop to look at our day, we will see that we are happy.
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. – Mother Teresa
