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.

    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.

    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.

    A little inspiration every day

    I hung this in my bedroom. It is the last thing I see before I go to wrok every day. It always brings a smile and reminds me of the real reason I do what I do.

    I was a little hesitant ordering from a company I've not heard of. I am so thrilled with this finished product.
    I will order from you again.
    Merry Christmas :)
