Friday Frills

People are unreasonable, illogical 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 may make you vulnerable.
 Be honest and frank anyway. 
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
 Think big anyway. 

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
 Build anyway. 
People really need help, but may attack if you help them.
 Help people anyway. 
Give the world the best you have and you might get kicked down to the ground.
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

I really love these words. Life's unfair..
but it's so true that you always have to give your best even
when it's not always appreciated!

I agree with this. It's similar to my philosophy of life. It isn't easy to persevere when others act badly, but we ought to live lives we're proud of regardless of how others act.

That 'poem' is so pretty! And I agree with it, people may be jackasses, but when you stop loving, all is lost.

Wow... I must print this! It's fabulous! You always write so amazing wors, that speak to my heart! I read the posts of the amazing skirts you kow I like, and where you are, just now! I have been feeling ill since last week - but I think it's psychological... whenever I feel reeeeally unhappy it starts - 3 times in my life now. I'll be fine soon - or I hope so. That's why the words you posted on Friday were fantastic to me!
I was so curious to know where you were, but didn;t dare to ask - didn't want to sound invasive - you know how Aquarians are!
But I'm very glad to know you posted where you are, and it's amazing! I always wanted to go to Alhambra, now seeing your pictures, I can find the drive to go!
Enjoy a lot more there and so nice to get to read about you again!
