Time To Go All Philosophical

So gather round for a group hug followed by inappropriate touching.

These were bounced to me this morning. I believe they are called The Paradoxical Commandments by Kent Keith circa 1968 – amazing what you can find on google. It does have a distinctly 60’s feel to it. I do note that the date of publication was shortly after the summer of love when young folks and hippies felt they could change the world. Only to discover that corporate America paid a lot better.

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered (I would add in stupid)
Love them anyway. (Dont know about this one – I prefer to tell them to be stupid somewhere else. Preferably on a bomb disposal course)

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.
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 favor 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.
