Mother Teresa quotes

We have all been created for greater things - to love and to be loved. Love is love - to love a person without any conditions, without any expectations. Works of love are works of peace and purity. Works of love are always a means of becoming closer to God, so the more we help each other, the more we really love God better by loving each other. Jesus very clearly said, "Love one another as I have loved you." Love in action is what gives us grace. We pray, and if we are able to love with a whole heart, then we will see the need. Those who are unwanted, unloved, and uncared for become just a throwaway of society - and that's why we must really make everybody feel wanted.

There is something else to remember - that this kind of love begins at home. We cannot give to the outside what we don't have on the inside. This is very important. If I can't see God's love in my brother and sister then how can I see that love in somebody else? How can I give it to somebody else? Everybody has got some good. Some hide it, some neglect it, but it is there.

--Mother Teresa
