Me And Mother Theresa….

This is a quote from Mother Theresa whose faith and philosophy we could all learn from. This is a particular favorite of mine and one I try to follow. It has also helped me through many hard times.


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

Do your best anyway.

For you see in the end it was between you and God

It was never between you and them anyway.

– Mother Theresa
