Mother Teresa Quotes

Mother Teresa quotes give you a glimpse of how truly magnificent this woman was.

She lived a life that was in service of others.

I once heard it said that Mother Teresa wasn't a rich woman. Nothing could be further from the truth. She was rich beyond most peoples comprehension.

If your definition of being rich only involves material things, then it may be a good idea to expand it.

Mother Teresa was rich in love and respect. Through the power of her faith she has helped countless people who suffered.

This quote by Mother Teresa speaks volumes; "Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."

Quotes by Mother Teresa

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. 

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. 

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. 

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

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. 

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway."
