Quotes of Mother Teresa





"Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray."



"I once picked up a woman from a garbage dump and she was burning with fever; she was in her last days and her only lament was: ‘My son did this to me.’ I begged her: You must forgive your son. In a moment of madness, when he was not himself, he did a thing he regrets. Be a mother to him, forgive him. It took me a long time to make her say: ‘I forgive my son.’ Just before she died in my arms, she was able to say that with a real forgiveness. She was not concerned that she was dying. The breaking of the heart was that her son did not want her. This is something you and I can understand."



"When once a chairman of a multinational company came to see me, to offer me a property in Bombay, he first asked: ‘Mother, how do you manage your budget?" I asked him who had sent him here. He replied: ‘I felt an urge inside me.’ I said: other people like you come to see me and say the same. It was clear God sent you, Mr. A, as He sends Mr. X, Mrs. Y, Miss Z, and they provide the material means we need for our work. The grace of God is what moved you. You are my budget. God sees to our needs, as Jesus promised. I accepted the property he gave and named it Asha Dan (Gift of Hope).



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



"Like Jesus we belong to the world living not for ourselves but for others. The joy of the Lord is our strength."



"There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I’ve always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic. We believe our work should be our example to people. We have among us 475 souls - 30 families are Catholics and the rest are all Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs—all different religions. But they all come to our prayers."



"There are so many religions and each one has its different ways of following God. I follow Christ:

Jesus is my God,

Jesus is my Spouse,

Jesus is my Life,

Jesus is my only Love,

Jesus is my All in All;

Jesus is my Everything."



Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those people throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy.

I heard the call to give up all and follow Christ into the slums to serve Him among the poorest of the poor. It was an order.

I was to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them.



When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her.

It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.



You and I, we are the Church, no? We have to share with our people. Suffering today is because people are hoarding, not giving, not sharing.

Jesus made it very clear. Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to me.

Give a glass of water, you give it to me. Receive a little

child, you receive me.



Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.



If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.











A clean heart is a free heart. A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Purity, chastity, and virginity created a special beauty in Mary that attracted God’s attention. He showed his great love for the world by giving Jesus to her.



There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives - the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family.

Find them.

Love them.



Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.



Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.



Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well.



The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance.

It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.





I pray that you will understand the words of Jesus, “Love one another as I have loved you.” Ask yourself “How has he loved me? Do I really love others in the same way?” Unless this love is among us, we can kill ourselves with work and it will only be work, not love. Work without love is slavery.



Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.



A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

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

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.

Mother Teresa



Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.

Mother Teresa



Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.

Mother Teresa



Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Good works are links that form a chain of love.

Mother Teresa



I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.

Mother Teresa



I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.

Mother Teresa



I think I'm more difficult than critical.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

Mother Teresa



If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

Mother Teresa



In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.

Mother Teresa



Intense love does not measure, it just gives.

Mother Teresa



It is a kingly act to assist the fallen.

Mother Teresa



It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



It is impossible to walk rapidly and be unhappy.

Mother Teresa



It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God - the rest will be given.

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 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.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home.

Mother Teresa



Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



Peace begins with a smile.

Mother Teresa



So many signatures for such a small heart.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



Sweetest Lord, make me appreciative of the dignity of my high vocation, and its many responsibilities. Never permit me to disgrace it by giving way to coldness, unkindness, or impatience.

Mother Teresa



The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.

Mother Teresa



The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



The success of love is in the loving - it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of what we have done.

Mother Teresa



There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



There should be less talk; a preaching point is not a meeting point. What do you do then? Take a broom and clean someone's house. That says enough.

Mother Teresa



We are all pencils in the hand of God.

Mother Teresa



We can do no great things, only small things with great love.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa



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.

Mother Teresa



We, the unwilling,led by the unknowing,are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much,for so long,with so little,we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

Mother Teresa



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

Mother Teresa
