Mother Teresa, a spiritual Catholic nun, founded the Missionaries of Charity of India. Helping the poor, the sick, and the dying and spread a ray of sunshine in their lives with her unselfish love.

The following are some quotes by this truly inspirational woman:

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.

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

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

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary.

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

Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.

I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle.

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

God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.

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

It is easier to offer a dish of rice to satisfy the hunger of a poor person, than to fill up the loneliness and suffering of someone lacking love in our own family.

How can you love God whom you do not see, if you don’t love the neighbor whom you do see-the neighbor you know and live with every day?

The fruit of Silence is Prayer. The fruit of Service is Peace

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

The fullness of our heart is expressed in our eyes, in our touch, in what we write, in what we say, in the way we walk, the way we receive, the way we need. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to your next door neighbor. Let no one come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, and kindness in your warm greeting.

Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other – it doesn’t matter who it is – and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other

A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.

God Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle.

And let’s not stop smiling at whomever we meet, especially when it’s hard to smile.

Keep the joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family.

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
