"Do It Anyway"

        Chances are you've already read this poem attributable to Mother Teresa.  Just in case you haven't, here it is:
         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.
        If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
        The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
      Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you've got anyway.
       You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.
