A dear friend of Jon's and John's (in fact, Jon's first love, Ric Latham),
read this tribute at The Celebration Of The Life Of John Meroney.

These lines are from "The Paradoxical Commandments",
a poem written by Kent M. Keith.

People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of ulterior motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you 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.

People favor underdogs but follow only top togs. Fight for some underdogs anyway.

What you spend 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 have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.

Give the world the best you've got anyway.
