"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.

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.

We can do no great things - only small things with great love.

- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

Quotes about Compassion - Quotes on Compassion

Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.
- Arthur Schopenhauer

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

- Pema Chodron

Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness.
Thus goodness is attained.
Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest.
Thus honesty is attained.
- Lao Tzu

The key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions
such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.
- Dalai Lama

Forgiveness is the cleansing fire that burns away old regrets and resentments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
- Mother Teresa

With courage you will dare to take risks,
have the strength to be compassionate,
and the wisdom to be humble.
Courage is the foundation of integrity.
- Keshavan Nair

I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving -
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings, the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference, the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people
is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with.
To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves,
we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes.
- Pema Chodron

I am the master of my emotions -
I transform fear to love, anger to compassion, pain to comfort,
scarcity to abundance, expectation to gratitude, and jealousy to generosity.

"Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi"

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- although attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, this prayer first appeared (written in French) in 1912
