AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Anyway

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 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!

People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs…
FIGHT FOR SOME UNDERDOGS ANYWAY!

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight…
BUILD ANYWAY!

People really need help, but may attack you if you help them…
HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY!

Give the world the best and you’ll get kicked in the teeth…
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY!

  1. I read your post and thought it convenient that Rorschach’s picture was staring me in the face. I think he would definitely sympathize with many of the statements made, especially “People really need help, but may attack you if you help them.” Whoever wrote this piece understood the paradoxes of living and actually doing your best all of the time; still the best is all we can do.
