Words of Wisdom from a Saint

Hi all,

I was going through my collection of 'Quotable Quotes' searching for some inspiration to share some worthwhile thoughts with you all, when I came across this good advice from Mother Teresa - a truly remarkable lady and a saint in every sense of the word. I don't think anyone in this present age can ever measured up to what she had done for the poor and needy. Our hats off to her selflessness and her unwavering faith in God and His kind mercies and grace.
I hope what she had to share with us today will help us to better understand ourselves and others who come along into our lives at one time or another. There is always a lesson to be learned from everyone and every circumstance that happens to be our lot. And I am sure this will offer some insight on why people and things are as they are. And despite all our expectations on how things should turn out, we will still keep on keeping on with what is true and pure and worth living for.

PEOPLE are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered,
Love them anyway.

IF you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives,
Do good anyway.

IF you are successful, you win false friends and enemies
Succeed anyway.

THE good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow,
Do good anyway.

HONESTY and frankness make you vulnerable,
Be honest and frank anyway.

PEOPLE favour the underdogs but follow only the top dogs,
Fight for some underdogs anyway.

WHAT you spent years building may be destroyed overnight
Build anyway.

PEOPLE really need help, but may attack you if you help them
Help people anyway.

GIVE the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
