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.

... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.

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

It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
