Smile A great life reminder...

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered: Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: Be kind anyway. What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight: Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous: Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten: Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it may 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

The only person not forgiving and holding a grudge hurts is the one carrying it. Whether or not you are able to let go of past hurts has no effect on the one that hurt you.

Thanks for the sharing the quotes, its a good one!

She's underrated...

...and the paradigm of what a truly good person looks and acts like. And I say that as somebody with profound issues regarding organized religion.

She transcended. If ever there were a Saint... she didn't perform miracles, she was a miracle.
