Edition Remembers: Mother Teresa, The Woman Who Taught The Act Of Love & Giving

Mother Teresa, was born in 1910 on the 27th of this month and died in 1997 was actually named Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu when she came into this world in Skopje, Yugoslavia.

She founded a religious order of nuns in Calcutta, India, called the Missionaries of Charity and spent her life working to help the poor and sick of India. After her, countless have followed in her footsteps, most notably, the late Lady Diana (former Princess of Wales) who even met Mother Teresa and shared a moment, and Queen Rania of Jordan.

A lot of those who aren’t mentioned are the quiet citizens around the world who go by without us knowing acting on these very words – helping, loving, loving, giving – to those who need all of these things, selflessly.

This month, is her birthday month and we decided to pay her a tribute with quotes by her, amidst all the chaos going on in the world. To remember her words, is the kindest tribute to her.

Here are some of our favourites:

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Peace begins with a smile.
If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
I’m a little pencil in the hand of a writing God, who is sending a love letter to the world.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.

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

& our favourite one: Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
