"Do It Anyway" poem by Mother Teresa

with 2 comments

Over two years ago, I posted this poem by Mother Teresa, and today I encountered this poem again through DZ. Ideas and questions that come back to you again and again may mean something worth pursuing, this is a sign from the nature / God for me.

Do It Anyway

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.

A poem by Tang Wan

with one comment

Tang Wan is the cousin and wife of Lu You.

Her poem appears pessimistic to me, yet it may reflect life.

Nevertheless, I want to be always optimistic.

Am I too idealistic to survive in this world?

I believe that I will survive and succeed.

钗头凤

世情薄,人情恶,雨送黄昏花易落。晓风干,泪痕残,意缄心事,独语斜难。难、难、难!

人成各,今非昨,病魂常似秋千索。角声寒,夜阑珊,怕人询问,咽泪妆欢。瞒、瞒、瞒!

Thank you:

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
