Anyway Poem

Found the following in a book I was reading in the Concord Public Library in 2002:
Anyway

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway!
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives
Do good anyways!
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyways!
The good you do today, will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway!
Honestly and frankness makes you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway!
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds;
Think big anyways!
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for the underdogs anyway!
What you spend years building up might be destroyed overnight.
Build anyways!
People really need help, but will attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway!
Give the world the best you have and it may kick you in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway!
