Mother Teresa's Advice


Take time...

Take time to think
Take time to pray
Take time to laugh
It is the source of power
It is the greatest power on earth
It is the music of the soul

Take time to play
Take time to love and be loved
Take time to give
It is the secret of perpetual youth
It is God’s given privilege
It is too short a day to be selfish

Take time to read
Take time to be friendly
Take time to work
It is the price of success

Take time to do charity 
It is the key to heaven.
It is the fountain of wisdom 
It is the road to happiness

From a sign on the wall of Mother Teresa’s children’s  home in Calcutta



Mother Teresa Quotes:

@Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

@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.

@We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

@Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.

@We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

@Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

@If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
@I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.

@The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.

@Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action.

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

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

@Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.

@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.

@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.

@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.
