Mother Teresa

Azi a fost cea mai zi calda din 2012 in Toronto.
Pentru ca trec printr-o perioada de scufundare, azi am ales sa imi amintesc cateva din cuvintele intelepte ale Maicii

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Oamenii sunt adesea neîntelegatori, irationali si egoisti…Iarta-i, oricum.
Daca esti bun, oamenii te pot acuza de egoism si intentii ascunse…Fii bun, oricum.
Daca ai succes, poti câstiga prieteni falsi si dusmani adevarati…Cauta succesul, oricum.
Daca esti cinstit si sincer, oamenii te pot însela…Fii cinstit si sincer, oricum.
Ceea ce construiesti în ani, altii pot darâma intr-o zi…Construieste, oricum.
Daca gasesti linistea si fericirea, oamenii pot fi gelosi…Fii fericit, oricum.
Binele pe care îl faci astazi, oamenii îl vor uita mâine…Fa bine, oricum.
Da-i lumii tot ce ai mai bun si poate nu va fi niciodata de-ajuns…Da-i lumii tot ce ai mai bun, oricum.
La urma urmei, este între tine si Dumnezeu…N-a fost niciodata între tine si ei, oricum.

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.

2. The Original Version:

The Paradoxical Commandments

by Dr. Kent M. Keith
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 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.
