Rex Barker again with........

"Anyway"
attributed to many,
but originally conceived
by Kent Keith in the 1960s...

People are unreasonable, illogical 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.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you 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've got anyway.

Reminding you that in life, you will often be given the opportunity to do right or wrong. The wrong may be easier, more (superficially) satisfying, more profitable, or appear to put you in a better light. Do the right thing anyway.

Whatever you do, it will come back to you.
It is better to do good for the sake of others AND yourself.
And who wants the bad coming back?

This is a beautiful piece, brought tears to my eyes, because unfortunately I believe that most of these statements are true (be sucessful, make fake friends and true ennemies, how true!)

BTW, thanks for your recent visit and comment on my blog. The dachshund derby was a lot of fun and put a lot of people in a really good mood that day!

Great quotes to help one stay on course in life!

Did you get a little snow today? My daughter said they did in the Cleveland area. Granddaughter Hannah was out building the last snowman of winter. lol.

Have a good night, Patty.

You asked about the grass roofs on the Norwegian buildings. Yes they have to mow the grass every now and then. In the old days they put a goat on the roof. The houses are very low.
