The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, 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 men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
"I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may
learn how to do it."

*Pablo Picasso{1881-1973}

I want to learn more of everything! Although it's hard to be in the learning stage. The initial curiosity stage is lots of fun, but to go much past that stage and really get into learning can be harder. Lots of things come fairly easily to me, so to actually have to buckle down and study something is difficult, but usually worth it!
