Gritting your teeth.

People are unreasonable, illogical and self centred; a lot of 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 frank and honest anyway. The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be cut down by the smallest people with the smallest minds, think big anyway. People say we are underdogs but follow top dogs, fight for the underdog anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight, go ahead and build it anyway. People often need help but will attack you if you help them, help people anyway. Give the world the best you've got, you could end up getting kicked in the teeth but you go ahead and give the world the best you've got anyway.

Julius Irving.
