Mother Teresa quotes page 2

Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person
nearest you.
Mother Teresa

To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Mother Teresa

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

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

Profound joy of the heart is like a magnet that indicates the path of life.
Mother Teresa

Each of us is merely a small instrument; all of us, after accomplishing our mission, will
disappear.
Mother Teresa

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

The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved,
and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for
loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a
piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a
different kind of poverty - it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's
a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.
Mother Teresa

Jesus said love one another. He didn't say love the whole world.
Mother Teresa

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

Work without love is slavery.
Mother Teresa

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.
Mother Teresa

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

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight; build it anyway.
Mother Teresa

I'm a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.
Mother Teresa 

I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot. Together we can do great things.
Mother Teresa

We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love.
Mother Teresa

If I ever become a Saint - I will surely be one of "darkness." I will continually be absent from
Heaven – to light the light of those in darkness on earth.
Mother Teresa

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

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 something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was
homeless, and you took me in."
Mother Teresa

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and
listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
Mother Teresa

I know God won't give me anything I can't handle. I just wish he didn't trust me so much.
Mother Teresa

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?"
Mother Teresa

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Mother Teresa

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.
Mother Teresa
