If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.

false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.

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

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

It was never between you and them anyway.
