Mother Teresa Quotations:

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving

Find someone no one else loves and love them

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. I do not agree with the big way of doing things.

Poverty is killing an unborn child so you can live as you wish

I do not pray for success. I ask for faithfulness

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

A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love

Do not wait for leaders. Do it alone, person to person

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

Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well.

 

The following poem is often credited to Mother Teresa but was actually written by Kent M. Keith but it does seem to reflect her life

Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

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

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.
