“The Paradoxical Commandments”

--- In, "pshel3005"  wrote: I was researching a site for an upcoming event when I came upon "The Paradoxical Commandments."  It made me stop and think that in a world of uncertainty, where people are seeking answers to various problems and concerns, and where the Country is now calling for Change, that sometimes it's good to simply stick to the basic.  By reaching out to family, friends and those in need, we realize that often the most important gift is that which we cannot see.  I hope you will find this inspiring.               "The Paradoxical Commandments" 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 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 in the teeth.                   Give the world the best you've got anyway. Dr. Kent M.
