mother teresa

Mother Teresa was a women of character that devoted her life to help others. To this day I am still amazed by everything she did and how she sacrificed her life to help strangers. These are a few quotes from this great lady that inspired hearts all over the world.

You will notice in all her quotes the message of love, reading her quotes makes me realize how disconnected we are in today’s society to other humans. She brought a message of love and peace that gives you goosebumps when you read them.

1- Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

2- Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.

3- Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
(This can also be seen a message not to wait for anyone to get things done. DO IT YOURSELF!)

4- Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.

5- Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
(Smiling and being kind to people will get you further in life than being mean and rude.)

6- God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.
(Trying is half the battle.)

7- I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.

8- I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.
(Don’t pray for things, act to achieve your goals.)

9- I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

10- I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.

11- I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.

12- I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
(We are so busy in our day to day life that most people don’t even know who lives with them on the same block.)

13- If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

14- If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

15- If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
(I’ve read many spiritual books and this comes back again and again. Don’t judge people and just accept them for who they are.)

16- Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.

17- One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
(This is so true and i’ve know people that even their kids see them as nobody’s.)

18- The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

19- There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.

20- We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

These quotes are full of love and passion, it’s not uncommon to feel such love from great people.  If everyone of us had a Mother Teresa in us, this world would be in a better shape.

  17. What life we have, what life we live and what we offer to life – all depend upon our mindset and to find a purpose for our lives. Mother Teresa did not express love in words- she showed love in action- through her journey of life sharing, minimising or serving people in distress in mind, body and spirit. What a life of inspiration and service she had lived to show what this life means for us to live.

  25. I see people fighting each other for personal gains and clearly indicates the lack of love. I will always respect what she taught us and were very far away from loving one another.

  27. thanx for giving us the important tips about self development. Mother Teresa’ sacrifices are the very big example developing the personality by helping others without any interest and believe in yourself.
