Memo from the British Isles

The United States, the world, has a new President-elect.To enable a new era, he will need our goodwill. Whatever he gets wrong, he will need 'on the ground' support. He will need us not to lose faith in the primary vision.




"People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centred

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 will be forgotten tomorrow

Do good anyway

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable

Be honest and frank anyway

What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight

Build anyway

People really need help but may attack you if you help them

Help people anyway

Give the world the best you've got and you'll get kicked in the teeth

Give the world the best you've got anyway."


 (From a sign on the wall of Shishu Bhavan, the children's home in Calcutta)
