Quotes from Mother Teresa


I have always admired Mother Teresa and been drawn to her life, her work, her endless giving and most of all her non stop loving of people. She was a very wise person and she had a lot to share and say. I was browsing through some of her quotes for my own benefit and inspiration. Then it occurred to me that maybe you kind readers would like to see some of her quotes. I made a list of 10 that were beautiful and do need sharing. I am hoping you will enjoy them and feel as inspired as I do by her! 🙂
1.Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
2.Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
3. I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
4.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.
5.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.
6.We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
7.Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
8.I found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurts only love.
9.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.
10.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.
