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.
