Unreason Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Unreason from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason
if we dig deep in our history and remember

not from men who feared to write, to speak,
to associate and to defend causes
which were for the moment unpopular.

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
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.

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

It was never between you and them anyway.
