The Paradoxical Commandments

Postby Akjosch » 2010-10-21 14:46:50+00:00

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

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

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

- Dr. Kent M. Keith, 1968

Just some words to live by I found today. :)

I find it very open-hearted and nice.

For all that matters, in the end what's left is only the feeling of self - fulfillment, the sense of completion one earns by acting according to the heart and not the mind. Just because the world is full of cold-hearted bastards, doesnt mean u have to be one yourself.
