by Mother Teresa
People are often unreasonable
Illogical and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
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;
If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness,
They may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
People will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Enjoy the introspection.
Following some comments on my previous post on the wildly popular Geeks, I was made aware of the Venn Diagram explaining the difference between the oft-confused terms of Geek, Nerd, Dweeb and Dork. Even I was confused, since I was called each of these names at various occasions in my life (don't feel sorry for me, I fully embrace my state).
So following this diagram, I am a Geek. Yes, I know that means I don't consider myself socially inept...
There, now I feel better.
