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, nor never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.

It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the worst poverty of all.

We can do no great things; only small things with great love.

Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.

God doesn't require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.

If you try, you will find it impossible to do one great thing. You can only do many small things with great love.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

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

You can do no great things, just small things with great love.

God loves the world through us.

There are many in the world dying for a piece of bread, but there are many more dying for a little love.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.

Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Holiness is doing God’s will with a smile.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

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

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

Whether one is Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian, how you live your life is proof that you are or not fully His. We cannot condemn or judge or pass words that will hurt people. We don't know in what way God is appearing to that soul and what God is drawing that soul to; therefor, who are we to condemn anybody?
