A few words of hope

Today, where hope is dying, lives are crying and we are all trying - to make peace or war, for better or for worse, we need words of wisdom to come our way now and then. Here are a few words of Mother Teresa I found on the Internet. In this distraught world where we are all fighting little battles of our own, I hope these words help.
"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."
I dig the ones I have italicized.
Always Hopeful.
