I am going through a huge “inspirational quote” kick lately. I have this obsession with creating graphics with my favorite quotes. It is no surprise that many of my favorite quotes come from Mother Teresa.
On another note, I am dying to see the movie The Letters about the life of Mother Teresa (you can see the trailer here). I am a protestant Christian and don’t understand some of the traditions of Catholicism, but I certainly revere and respect the intense love and compassion this incredible woman of God demonstrated in her lifetime.
Here are just a few of my favorite quotes by Mother Teresa:
“One filled with joy preaches without preaching.” -Mother Teresa
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” -Mother Teresa
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” -Mother Teresa
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” -Mother Teresa
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” -Mother Teresa
“If you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family.” -Mother Teresa
“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” -Mother Teresa
“A life not lived for others is not a life.” -Mother Teresa
