Anyway

Thoughts by Dave Blundell on January 22nd, 2014 – 1 minute read

I love the Paradoxical Commandments by Kent Keith:

  • 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.
