Words found in a Pete’s Coffee House
in Northern California, generally
attributed to Mother Teresa or
Kent M. Keith, and widely circulated
ever since.

When it comes to human behavior,
we have no shortage of bad examples
before us, but these inspiring words
can help us to set our course aright,
giving us a beacon of hope and a
shining example of right behavior.

This one is a keeper, worthy of being
shared with your email list. It seems
especially appropriate for all of us
who Care2 make a difference.
Read it here:

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

* If you do good, people will accuse you
of ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

* If you are successful you win false
friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

* The good you do today will be forgotten
Do good anyway.

* Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

* People favor underdogs but follow only
top dogs.
Fight for some underdogs anyway.

* What you spend 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’ve got
and you may get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best
you’ve got anyway.
