Pause For Thought
With Father Brian D’Arcy, a Catholic Passionist priest.
I admire people who can package wisdom for life in bullet points. One of my favourites is a man called Kent Keith. Back in the 60’s he was a student leader at Harvard. To counteract the hippy, drop-out, mentality of the time, he composed a set of value statements which he called the Paradoxical Commandments. He urged students to keep on doing good especially when surrounded by negativity.
His words, first published in a student magazine, went around the world. They are still quoted anonymously today, because the writer never insisted on copyright. He is now Dr Kent Keith who helps people search for spiritual meaning in this writings and lectures. Here’s part of what he wrote as a 19 year old, idealistic, student in 1968.
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centred: Love them anyway
If you do good people will accuse you of 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 will make you vulnerable: be honest and frank 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.
Recently, when asked if he’d add any new commandments now, he answered: The world is full of violence, injustice, starvation, disease and environmental destruction – Have faith anyway.
Now that’s what I call wisdom for life in bullet points.
