Do it Anyway

I think this has to be my most favorite Mother Teresa quote. Ever:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. 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


  1. I agree. What a great lady she was. Wonderful quote.

  2. A wonderful human being who was a great example to us all! Wise words from a truly inspirational woman. Thank you for sharing x

  3. This actually is not a Mother Teresa quote. It is by Dr. Kent Keith. http://www.paradoxicalcommandments.com/ It did hang on Mother Teresa's wall but not written by her.

  4. That is the essence of Love .


Hope you have a brilliant day!!
