The Grandfather Chronicles(tm) This is society's quintessential question. Can you answer, "What Would You Tell the Next Generation?"
Answer "The Question"
Have you felt as if your good efforts go un-noticed? Have you ever tried hard to do the right thing, only to get beat out by someone who cut corners? Or have you felt as if you are simply doing your best, only to have people misunderstand your motives and intentions? If you've ever felt like saying, "What's the use?", this piece, is for you:
THE FINAL ANALYSIS People are often unreasonable, Illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, alterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, You will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, People may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, Someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, They may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, People will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, And it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, It is between you and God; It never was between you and them anyway. (Author Unknown) Submitted by Fran Stefaniak, 1999 Visit Fran's Site at: GFC Page-000,00,080
