Anyway

      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 will be forgotten tomorrow,
                         DO GOOD ANYWAY
           Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable,
                   BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY
              What you spent years building may be
                      destroyed overnight,
                          BUILD ANYWAY
                     People really need help
               but many 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.
