Mother Teresa on Innovation (and Life)
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; BE SUCCESSFUL ANYWAY.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you; BE HONEST AND SINCERE ANYWAY.
What you spend years creating, others may tear down overnight; CREATE ANYWAY.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous; BE HAPPY ANYWAY.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten tomorrow; DO IT ANYWAY.
In the final analysis, it's between you and God; IT WAS NEVER ABOUT YOU AND THEM ANYWAY.

Nice sentiments Mitch, apart from the questionable last line. However, it's likely that Mother Teresa did not actually write this, rather that someone else adapted it from a piece that a guy called Dr Kent M Keith wrote, and then attributed it to her. See, for instance:
