“If you are humble
nothing will touch you,
neither praise nor disgrace,
because you know what you are”
“Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted,for having someone to call their own.” ~Mother Teresa
“I have never been
in a war before,
but I have seen
famine and death.
I was asking (myself)
what do they feel
when they do this?
I don’t understand it.
They are all children of God.
Why do they do it?
I don’t understand” ~Mother Teresa
“Please choose the way of peace. In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, or never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.”~Mother Teresa
“Joy is prayer; joy is strength;
joy is love; joy is a net of love
by which you can catch souls.”
“We ourselves feel
that what we are doing
is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less
because of that missing drop.” ~Mother Teresa
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”~Mother Teresa
“There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.” ~Mother Teresa
“There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.”
“The success of love is in the loving
it is not in the result of loving.
Of course it is natural in love
to want the best for the other person,
but whether it turns out that way
or not does NOT determine
the value of what we have done.”
“Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come
to you without leaving happier.”
“Our life of poverty
is as necessary as the work itself.
Only in heaven
will we see how much
we owe to the poor for helping us to
love God better because of them.”
“Love is a fruit in season at all times,
and within reach of every hand.”
“Let us touch the dying,
the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received
and let us not be ashamed
or slow to do the humble work.”
“Let us not be satisfied
with just giving money.
Money is not enough,
money can be got, but they need
your hearts to love them.
So, spread your love
everywhere you go.”
“Let us always meet each other with smile,
for the smile is the beginning of love.”
