Mother Teresa quotes

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

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

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.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.

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

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

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action.

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.

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

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.

Peace begins with a smile.

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

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

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.

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

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
