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 true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build 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.
A home should have a cookie jar for when it is half past three
And children hurry home from school as hungry as can be,
there is nothing quite so splendid in filling children up,
As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes and sweet milk in a cup.
A home should have a mother waiting with a hug,
No matter what a boy brings home---a puppy or a bug,
For children only loiter when the bell rings to dismiss,
If no one is home to greet them with a cookie and a kiss.
