The Paradoxical Commandments

We are going to do The Paradoxical Commandments for copywork/dictation.   I will be posting other passages as I come across them. 

This quote is often accredited to Mother Theresa who purportedly hung them on the wall of her orphanage in Calcutta.

The Paradoxical Commandments ~ Kent M. Keith,1968 (at age 19)

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway. . .

For the entire poem go here – http://www.kentmkeith.com/commandments.html

“You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.”  ~  Kent Keith
