"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, 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
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

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.
- Mother Teresa

Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself.
Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor
for helping us to love God better because of them.
- Mother Teresa

There is more hunger for love and appreciation
in this world than for bread.
- Mother Teresa

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.
- Mother Teresa

The most terrible poverty is loneliness
and the feeling of being unloved.
- Mother Teresa

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
- Mother Teresa

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.
- Mother Teresa

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted
is the most terrible poverty.
- Mother Teresa

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.
- Mother Teresa

Love begins by taking care of the closest ones -
the ones at home.
- Mother Teresa

Do not wait for leaders;
do it alone, person to person.
- Mother Teresa

Let us always meet each other with a smile,
for the smile is the beginning of love.
- Mother Teresa

I try to give to the poor people for love
what the rich could get for money.
No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds;
yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
- Mother Teresa

Be faithful in small things
because it is in them that your strength lies.
- Mother Teresa

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing,
are doing the impossible for the ungrateful.
We have done so much, for so long, with so little,
we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
- Mother Teresa

Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
- Mother Teresa

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because
if a mother can kill her own child,
what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me?
There is nothing between.

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.

A well-developed sense of humor
is the pole that adds balance to your steps,
as you walk the tightrope of life.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.

Laugh when you can,
apologize when you should,
and let go of what you can't change.
Life's too short to be anything... but happy.

people will forget what you did,

how you made them feel.

You will not be punished for your anger,
you will be punished by your anger.
