People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered — love them anyway

"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 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 favour underdogs but follow only 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."

I get what Keith is saying and certainly have had some of those experiences. However, I also have seen the flip side.

Sometimes people remember the small kindness that turned their life in a new direction. We rarely hear from those quiet voices, and so never know the outcome.

Sure someone may trample your garden, but it is amazing how the seeds will come back and flourish.

I think you could make up a very nice list based around this theme. :)
