Quotes To Live By
These Mother Teresa quotes are all positive, inspirational words of wisdom. As the majority of photographs that we see of Mother Teresa are all of when she was a much older woman, I thought that it would be good to have a photo of her when she was younger.
Mother Teresa was born in Skopje, Macedonia on 26th August 1910. Her name at birth was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. She became a Roman Catholic nun and began teaching in India. She went on to work among the poorest of poor in the slums of Calcutta and founded The Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa won many awards over the years including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. She died on 5th September 1997.

I am a little pencil in the hand of God, who is sending a love letter to the world.
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, He will not ask, "How many good things have you done in your life?" Rather he will ask, "How much love did you put into what you did?"

If we believe, we will love.

The ones at home.

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within the reach of every hand. Anyone may gather it and no limit is set.
Never worry about numbers, help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.

Peace begins with a smile.
Profound joy of the heart is like a magnet that indicates the path of life.
Smile at each other - smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other - it doesn't matter who it is - and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.
Lucy & Jessica (2002)
Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbour.. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
Spread the love of God through your life.
Mother Teresa Quotes: T
The greatest science in the world - in Heaven and on Earth - is love.
The way you help heal the world is you start with your own family.
The words of Jesus, 'Love one another as I have loved you.' must be not only a light to us, but a flame that consumes the self in us.
We are all pencils in the hand of God.
We must know that we have been created for greater things, not just to be a number in the world, not just to go for diplomas and degrees, this work and that work. We have been created in order to love and to be loved.
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.
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.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
What can you do to promote world peace?...
Go home and love your family.
When you know how much God is in love with you, then you can only live your life radiating that love.
Mother Teresa Quotes: Y
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come.
We only have today... Let us begin.
