Mother Teresa Quotes

“We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge. People make mistakes.
We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

Pause and ponder. Think before you act. Be patient. Forgive & forget. Love one and all.

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

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

“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.”

“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us.

It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home.

Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”

“The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.”

“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.”

“It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.”

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

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

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

“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.”

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

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

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

“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.”

“Peace begins with a smile.”

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

“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.”

“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.”

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

“I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?”

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

“I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.”

“There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.”

“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.”

  • Shiladitya Datta March 28, 2013, 9:39 pm

    Mother Teresa is a true mother to world and mankind. As long as she was alive, I proudly said that I had two mothers, one my own, and another Mother Teresa.

    Her teachings have made me what I am today, a human being. She has removed many, many negative thoughts from my mind. Her teachings have given me inner peace which many, many people will find it hard to get.

    My life has been successful because of her. I pray to God that in my next life, I want to meet someone like her. Mother Teresa is another Jesus Christ in disguise.

    Very interesting thoughts

    All mothers are beloveed and mothers are foundations of life. All of us always saying my mom is most beloved and most kind hearted mom in the world, all of us right.

  • Rita Borg December 1, 2012, 4:14 am

    My mother had the most kind heart, she raised 9 children during the war. She lost babies due to poverty and sickness. She went through agony when she lost another daughter of 27 married with three children, then she took them under her wings. One was baby he had to go to an orphanage.

    I have never seen anyone suffer so much in her life she died just 52 yrs old. I was 14. When I learned about Mother Theresa and her kindness she always remind me of my mom. How many mothers suffer and still are capable to help others only God knows.

    May the holy Mary Mother of GOD stand by all mothers. I loved my mom so much. Thank you for the beautiful quotes. I had to share the love for my mom.
