Currie's Gratitude 23 October 2014

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]

Sometimes all the words in the World still canNOT express the simplest thoughtsandfeelings. They bend and stretch and wrap themselves into pretty paragraphs and pages and still they don’t come close to saying anything anyone can understand.

And still I come here and try to weave them into sense. To reach BEyond myself.

I love you, Currie
