Dear First name / Friend,
Today, we offer you a poem attributed to Mother Theresa, but the origin of which seems to be from a college student named Kent M. Keith who published a pamphlet in 1968 titled “The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council”. 
Often called the “Paradoxical Commandments” they remind us to stay rooted in our values - and call on our bravery in the face of doubt. 
Here it is. 
01: People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
02: If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.
03: If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
04: The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
05: Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
06: The biggest men with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.
07: People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
08: What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
09: People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.
10: Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
