Mother Teresa Speaks

mother-teresa-biography.jpg

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."

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

"I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there."

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

"Love begins by taking care of the closest ones -- the ones at home."

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

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

"The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted."

"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."

"I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?"

"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."

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

"One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody."

"Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand."

"The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it."
