"RE:  "Do It Anyway""

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
What you have posted, brother Jim, reminds me of what one can hear at the end of the Mark Twain steamboat ride at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, USA.  One hears the supposed voice of the famous American humorist say:
    "Always do right.  This will gratify some people, and astonish the rest."
                                                                    Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Here is a link to four more famous Mark Twain quotes:  http://www.quotedb.com/quotes/120
 
Baruch HaShem Adonai [Blessed be the Name of the LORD],
Mike C.

"Do It Anyway"

Do it Anyway

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,
it may offend;
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.
