People Can Be Unreasonable

Some thoughts from a Great Master to be remembered at this sacred transformational time of Easter.

People Are Often Unreasonable

  • People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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 false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway.
  • If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway.
  • What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway.
  • If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
  • The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.
  • Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
  • You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
