Below is a prayer from Mother Teresa. I dont think it matters if you believe in God or not, or whether you are Christian / Jew / Muslim / Hindu or not.

The words are worth thinking about :D



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; Suceed 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

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.

Mel, I haven't come across that before, but I really like it.


On those occasions when I ask'Oh, what's the point?/I give up', the point really is that THAT is what I believe I should be doing and want to do. That is the point: being the person that I want and choose to be, regardless of what other people think or say.


Thank you for posting that! :D
