GET INVOLVED ANYWAY

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies;

Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable;

Be honest and frank anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs;

Fight for some underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight;

Build anyway.

People really need help but they may attack you if you help them;

Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you will get kicked in the teeth;

Give the world the best you have anyway.

And then remember, some day every loose end will be tied up, every good will be noted, every book will be balanced. You will get what you have given.

Even more so.
