The Paradoxical Commandments

Just a little something I read recently. Loved it, so I thought I might as well share it with you lots.
The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, 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 will 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.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council


I know, this blog is practically dead. My last post was in November and it was not a proper post, even. A lot has been going on with my life, the biggest being when I lost my sweetheart, Tigger. Right now I'm quite preoccupied with school, with me being a final semester student and all. Gosh, I'm almost at the end of my degree, guys! It feels surreal.

Maybe I'll come around to update this blog with outdated updates. Maybe.

Till then, take care people. Hugsies.
