Ode to Friday: Mother Teresa + Erhard

People are often unreasonable and self-centred. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

~ Mother Teresa (Albanian, Indian, 1910-1997)


Here is where it is
Now is when it is
You are what it is


~ Werner Erhard (American, 1935 – )


I published the first one this time last year. I’m republishing it because Christmas can bring up things that are incomplete about our lives, and one of us might remember it in a time of need.

  1. I do love Mother Teresa’s words and often have them pinned somewhere in regular sight.

    And what great words from Werner Erhard too. A lovely reminder of the present moment and our responsibility to make it so.

    Thank you Narelle for a year of sharing your thoughts and insights. You inspire such juicy provoking of thoughts that one must feel delightfully uncomfortable with while reflecting, and the soul subsequently expands a little more.

    Wishing you an amazing year ahead with many blessings.
