Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments

Author: Kent M. Keith, Ed.D.

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 the 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.

Hey Royal Bitch – I’m a cat and I’m bigger and more agile than you. What’re you gonna do about it?

Release intestinal gas in your general direction.


Your Eminence – My name is Max and I’m your brother. Will you please stop being so bossy?

No, you toad. Now get away from our rrroyal rrrawhide chewy.


Saint Amber (the unambivalent) – I’m a human and …

Stop right there! We don’t want to hear it! We are looking away …
