Anyway - A Guest Post by Errol Clark Halkett


People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered
Love them anyway
If you do good, people will accuse you of 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 may attack you if you help them
Help people anyway
Give the world the best you have and it’ll kick you in the teeth
Give the world your best anyway

From a collection of writings by Errol Clark Halkett
