Mother Teresa: Quotes About Peace, Love and Life

Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997) also known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, MC, was an Albanian Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary. She was born in Skopje (modern Macedonia), then part of the Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire. After having lived in Macedonia for some eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life.

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

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

“Peace begins with a smile…”

“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?”

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

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

“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”  

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

“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.”

“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.”

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

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

“Never travel faster than your guardian angel can fly.”
