Great Advice from Mother Teresa

     I love quotes.  Many times I just surf the web when I'm trying to say something and find some great nuggets of wisdom.  I have encouraging quotes posted all around my classroom.  One of my favorite people to quote is Mother Teresa.  Here is one of her quotes that is great to reflect on as we start this year:
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, People may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, They may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.
