Mother Teresa Quotes: 21 Thoughtful Sayings

by Pamela Rose Williams on March 6, 2012 · Print Print · Email Email

In my research for famous quotes I believe Mother Teresa may be one of the most quoted people of all time. Many times she said just a few words, but whatever she said, you can believe it was a very thoughtful saying. Here are just 21 Mother Teresa quotes, I think you will agree that she must have thought long and hard before she said them.

“Spread the love of God through your life but only use words when necessary.”

Mother Teresa Quotes About the Importance of a Smile

Mother Teresa Quotes

"Peace begins with a smile ..."

“Peace begins with a smile..”

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

“The person who gives with a smile is the best giver because God loves a cheerful giver.”

“Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.”

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

“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 to grow up in greater love for each other.”

Mother Teresa Quotes About Love & Peace

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

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

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

“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’m a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.”

“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

“Love to be real, it must cost—it must hurt—it must empty us of self.”

“Go out into the world today and love the people you meet. Let your presence light new light in the hearts of people.”

Mother Teresa Quotes About Doing

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

“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”

“A life not lived for others is not a life.”

“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.”

“The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.”

“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.”

She is really a great woman. And is also a idol we should respect!

I do not think she would like to be called an idol.

MOTHER TERESA, WAS A LIVING SAINT, WE NEVER KNEW SHE WAS A SAINT, BUT ONLY GOD KNEW, BECAUSE THE PEOPLE SHE TOUCHED WAS A HEALING BY ITSELF AND A COMFORT FROM GOD THROUGH MOTHER TERESA.
I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER MOTHER TERESA
AND MY PRAYERS WILL BE WITH HER.
JOHN

she is a great woman and an idol to who are sick and we should respect the work she does . We should never forget the people in Africa and people in poverty . It is GOD who is helping us and guiding us so let us grow to love him more and never forget the great things he sends Mother Teresa and all the saints (that includes us children and adults). SO if you need help don`t always be counting on Mum to do it pray to GOD. And don`t forget GOD is always with you.
GOD BLESS YA`LL

GOD said forgive and forget so if your sister or brother does something by mistake forgive them because they did not mean it.
GOD BLESS YA`LL

There can never be any other mother like Mother Theresa. She lived a well-lived life, seeking to help those she lived with on this earth. She left for us something that can never be compared to anything else…wisdom and Knowledge!
