Do Right and Fear No Man.

I thought this an apt poem considering the world we live in and especially as people, this Christmas Season, face the cruel arrows that are the calumnies, half-truths and outright lies fired by the self-seeking, corrupt, money-grubbing, degenerate and psychotic, it would do well for Brave Souls to read this and live by it.

There are always people queuing up to denigrate us, castigate us, belittle us and calumniate us. 'Twas ever thus, but it should never stop anyone from doing what is right - even as it didn't stop the innocent child born in poverty over 2000 years ago, who would (33 years later) face the howling mob, whipped by the Jewish powers, which screamed: "Crucify Him! Crucify Him!"

Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

People are often unreasonable, illogical 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 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 was never between you and them anyway.

[Inscribed on the wall of Mother Teresa's children's home in Calcutta]
