Mother Teresa Quotes


The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
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.
God is the friend of silence. Trees, flowers, grass grow in silence. See the stars, moon, and sun how they move in silence.
At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done.
We will be judged by 'I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.'
Hungry not only for bread -- but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing -- but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks -- but homeless because of rejection.
There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.
If we worry too much about ourselves, we won't have time for others.
Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. The rest will be given.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have, the more free you are.
If we want a love message to be heard, it has to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
