Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Join us for another episode as we talk about the importance of loving anyway and continuing to do good in the world, despite the circumstances.
Now, before we leave heart month and the extra day of the year, thoughts seem to linger on recipes for the heart and many warm thoughts. Great minds have given us many thoughts from the heart on love.
How deep is love? What is love? When I have quiet thoughts from the heart, I am reminded of the poem which was decided by Dr. Carl A. Meneinger at the literary symposium on October 27th, 1981 at the Dag Hammarskjold auditorium, United Nations. It is entitled, “Anyway.”
People are unreasonable, illogical, 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. Try to be successful anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do it anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
People favor underdogs, but I notice they follow the top dogs. Fight for some underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
People really need help but they may attack you if you help them. Try to 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. Love them anyway.
Warm thoughts: Speak gently. It is far better to rule by love than fear. Speak gently. Let no harsh words mar the good we may do here. My home is where you hang your heart. May you have many great thoughts from the heart.
