Mother Teresa’s philosophy: “People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centred. 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. / If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. / The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. / Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. / In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” Mother Teresa was born on August 26th 1910.
