Forgive them anyway.

The version found written on the wall in Mother Teresa’s home for children in
Calcutta:

              People
are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine
enemies. 
 Succeed
anyway.

           If
you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere
anyway.

            What
you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

            If
you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

            The
good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

         Give
the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

         In
the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you
and them anyway.

version is credited to Mother Teresa
