... 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;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

... Build anyway.

... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

It was never between you and them anyway.
