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.
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.
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.

We would like to thank everyone for your kind thoughts and support.They have truly been encouraging. It’s been a rough week for us. The flood washed away our bridge that connects us to the world. We were not harmed, our house was not touched. We consider ourselves fortunate. The Forest Service is building us a footbridge, a giant leap.
We will resume posting the Thought for the Day on Saturday May 26th. Thank you so much for your patience.
This is what happened yesterday where we live. We may not be posting for a while and wanted to let you know why. Thought for the Day will be back up as soon as we get this mess cleaned up. Thank you for your patience.
“For as we forgive, we are forgiven;
as we condemn others, we are ourselves condemned.
Thus in patience condemn not, neither find fault;
not condoning, not agreeing,
but let thine own life so shine that others,
seeing thy patience, knowing thy understanding,
comprehending thy peace, may take hope.”
~ Edgar Cayce
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.”
~ Will Rogers
“The best way to not feel hopeless
is to get up and do something.
Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.
If you go out and make some good things happen,
you will fill the world with hope,
you will fill yourself with hope.”
~ Barack Obama
“Do something nice and try not to get caught.”
