... 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;

... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

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.

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