The Wisdom of Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa continues to be a source of inspiration to me; her ability to be gracious, her benevolent nature and the wisdom she found in living a charitable life is something we can all benefit from. Three of my favourite quotes from Mother Teresa include:

  • “Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary.” – Mother Teresa
  • “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Teresa
  • “Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.” – Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa lived a life in service of others; yet her words reflect our ability to begin with love and kindness in our own lives, in our own hearts and homes; moving outward as we grow in courtesy and compassion.

  1. Hi Kristine, my good friend Stephanie Emmons wrote a book about her visit to India to work with Mother Theresa. You may enjoy it. It is called “She Made me Laugh”.
