 Product Description

Full Sign Text:

Found written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta: People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.


  • Sign Size: 9x36 inches
  • Made from solid knotty pine
  • Beveled edges
  • Routed slot in back for hanging
  • Lightly distressed to create a warm, aged look. 

When making our signs we do not use highly processed wood; because of this, you can expect knots and minor imperfections that make each piece unique.

    Posted by Cheryl on 14th Feb 2017

    This is the 2nd one I've purchased, first one was for me in the burgundy. My sister loved it so I just purchased the second one in barnwood as a surprise for her! High quality and just beautiful! Would definitely recommend it to others!

  4. Very pretty!

    This is a beautifully made sign. I ordered it in cottage white with dark brown lettering. Right now it's hanging in my kitchen but I think eventually I will put it in the guest room. It is well made, big enough to read easily but not so huge it takes up too much of my kitchen wall. The writing is pretty and, of course, I love the quote. Thanks!

  5. Beautiful

    I ordered signs on "barnwood" slate color and it is GORGEOUS! And I was surprised how quickly I received my order. I will DEFINATELY order from this company again.

  8. Fast shipping, quality product

    I was shocked at how quickly this arrived. It is exactly as advertised and looks excellent.

  9. Very helpful staff

    Posted by Nancy FG on 18th Jan 2014

    I loved the product. Well made, color to order. I even changed my background order and emailed right away and the staff changed to the color I wanted without much fuss. I actually get a mini- office outside of the cube farm and I am going to treat myself to wall hangings that mean something to me and hopefully inspire my staff.

  10. Inspirational quote

    Posted by Nannie25 on 31st Jul 2013

    I spotted this plaque for the first time last month while visiting Martha's Vineyard. I did not want to lug it onto the ferry. So, when I arrived home I searched the internet for it. This company does it right. The item I ordered is just what I wanted in the colors I wanted.
