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.

It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.

who kept a copy of this prayer on
