    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 Theresa

    I think that people would like to believe 'Mother Theresa' wrote that.

    People's beliefs about Teresa often seem more driven by their desires than reality though.

    I didn't mean to imply you had tried to mislead anyone.

    I just read it, and it seemed to fit amusingly well with the Theresa mythology, so thought I'd just comment on that.

    k, i'm agnostic actually - dont' know a thing about it.
    just thought the quote was beautiful :)
    in the end to me it is between my own integrity & myself, but some may call that God & that is fine :)
