Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997)

The Paradoxical Commandments:

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.

One response to “Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997)

    She is the most admirable person for me in the world. However, I sometime confused with her. Sometime, I am sure that I will never be able to do like her but sometime, I ask myself why I can’t do so. Can I do like her? I am still wondering. Anyway, we are not deserved to compare and I am not comparing myself, the stupid and foolish one and Mother Teresa, the greatest lady in the world.
