Quotes

I have a really deep love toward God, my Father. He’s my one and only Father and none like Him. I talk to him everyday and tell Him anything, from simple to big things. Nothing can make me more happy than doing the will of my Father.

I have always admired Mother Theresa since I was a kid. It is strange that I dreamt to be like her one day. She’s not a celebrity we like to talk about everyday, but she’s a simple person who never worries about clothes, fashion and anything else in this world. But she’d rather give her life and heart to God, working with the poor and unwanted people. I adore someone who follows the work of my Lord Jesus.Â

We have to remember that our life in this world is just temporary. When we do something for other people, we must make sure to do it with the whole heart. Even though that’s a lowly and invaluable task people might think of.  In regard to helping others, many people like to do respective tasks, but not many people want to do the lower tasks. Well, we better look at it differently because what we do is ultimately all for God.

Below is a collection of my most favorite quotes that I gathered from Mother Theresa?

************
“Do it Anyway”

People are often unreasonable, irrational and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;
 Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight;
Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten;
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

*******
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.

*******
Sweetest Lord, make me appreciative of the dignity of my high
vocation, and its many responsibilities. Never permit me to disgrace
it by giving way to coldness, unkindness, or impatience.

*******
There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the
sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the
devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why
we try to do it as beautifully as possible.

*******
I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish
that He didn’t trust me so much.

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

*******
I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.

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

*******
Peace begins with a smile.
Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the
beginning of love.
Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to
that person, a beautiful thing.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

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

*******
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to
love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve
hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved
in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our
love for each other must start.

*******
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.

*******
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.

*******
Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary.
What we need is to love without getting tired.

*******
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is
put into them that matters.

*******
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you
without leaving happier.

*******
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. 

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

*******
Intense love does not measure, it just gives. 

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

*******
The success of love is in the loving – it is not in the result of loving. Of
course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but
whether it turns out that way or not does not determine the value of
what we have done.

*******
There should be less talk; a preaching point is not a meeting point.
What do you do then? Take a broom and clean someone’s house.
That says enough.

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

*******
Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according
to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to
do the humble work.

*******
Jesus said love one another. He didn’t say love the whole world.

*******
There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well.
They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste.
When I see people throwing away things that we could use.

*******
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I don’t 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?
