Inspirational quote

I very often come across quotes that inspire me greatly.  I read them, think that I should write them down somewhere and then promptly move on to doing something else. 

So I've decided that this blog would be a good place to write the quotes that I find inspiring so that they are not lost and forgotten, and may even be enjoyed by somebody else. 

For the quote below, I particularly like the last sentence.

"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."
- Mother Teresa
