"Whoever wants to be a leader among you must first be your servant." - Mark 10:43
"The best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better." - Richard Rohr
"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there is a field. I will meet you there." - Rumi
"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.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, someone could destroy overnight;
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 your God;
It was never between you and them anyway." - Mother Teresa
