“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
– Charles Dickens
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;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
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.
An amazing “Pay It Forward” gesture from a business in Wichita, Kansas.
Ua ola no i ka pane a ke aloha.
“There is life in a kindly reply.”
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
