Mother Teresa

What a lady – pairing words and wisdom together.

“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

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

“Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.” {ouch – that hits close to home!}

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

“Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.”

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”

“Intense love does not measure, it just gives.”

“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.”

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

“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.”

“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.”
