This act of kindness reminded me of what Mother Teresa once said. I want to share it with you.
“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 false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight;
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 may 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.”
Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
