A Holiday Card
There is dispute about who wrote "Anyway". Some say Mother Theresa; others name various American poets. This season, whatever you celebrate and however you celebrate it – Chanukah December 10 — 18, Twelve days of Christmas December 25 – January 5, or Kwanza December 26 – January 1 — this is a holiday card from Stockbridge Updates to its readers.

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.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find 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 have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your conscience;
It was never between you and them anyway.
