Some famous Mother Teresa Quotes:

  • 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.

  •  Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.

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

  • 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.

Mother Teresa Quotes

  • Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus.

  • One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.

  • Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.

  • Peace begins with a smile.

Mother Teresa Quotes

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

  • There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, to Christ, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
Siddhartha Gautama
(The Buddha)
563-483 B.C.
