Forget about stingy...

Michele Wierzgak posted this quote on the MIMlist today. It's so apropos, given all the rhetoric about whether or not the U.S. is doing enough to help those devastated by the tsunamis in South Asia, that I wanted to repeat it here:

People are often unreasonable and self-centered - forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives - be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you - be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous - be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow - do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough - give your

best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God - it never was between

you and them anyway. ~ Mother Teresa
