*“الوصايا المتناقضة”*
*“The Paradoxical Commandments”*

هي عشر وصايا كتبها الكاتب الأمريكي *كينت كيث Kent M. Keith* سنة ١٩٦٨م ٬ التي حولها عام ٢٠٠٢م إلى كتاب سماه *“على أية حال” “Anyway”* والذي تربع على أكثر الكتب مبيعاً في أمريكا في تلك الفترة ولفترات طويلة .
تم ترجمة هذه الوصايا إلى العديد من اللغات ٬ فلفتت العالم٬ وتحولت إلى ملصقات ٬ وعلقت على الحوائط و الأبواب ٬ كانت هذه الوصايا كالأتي:

1. People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
١. الناس غير منطقيين ولا تهمهم إلا مصلحتهم ، أحِبهم على أية حال .

2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.
٢. إذا فعلت الخير سيتهمك الناس بأن لك دوافع أنانية خفية ، إفعل الخير على أية حال .

3. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
٣. إذا حققت النجاح سوف تكسب أصدقاء مزيفين وأعداء حقيقين ، إنجح على أية حال .

4. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
٤. الخير الذي تفعله اليوم سوف ينسى غداً ، إفعل الخير على أية حال .

5. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
٥. إن الصدق والصراحة يجعلانك عرضة للإنتقاد ، كن صادقاً وصريحاً على أية حال .

6. 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.
٦. إن أعظم الرجال والنساء الذي يحملون أعظم الأفكار يمكن أن يوقفهم أصغر الرجال والنساء الذين يملكون أصغر العقول ، إحمل أفكاراً عظيمة على أية حال .

7. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
٧. الناس يحبون المستضعفين لكنهم يتبعون المستكبرين ، جاهد من أجل المستضعفين على أية حال .

8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
٨. ما تنفقه في بنائه سنوات قد ينهار بين عشية وضحاها ، إبني على أية حال .

9. People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.
٩. الناس في أمس الحاجة إلى المساعدة لكنهم قد يهاجمونك إذا ساعدتهم ، ساعدهم على أية حال .

10. Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
١٠. إذا أعطيت العالم أفضل ما لديك سيرد عليك البعض بالإساءة ، أعط العالم أفضل ما لديك على أية حال .

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway…
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.
