Catholic nun and missionary Mother Teresa was born on August 26, 1910, in Skopje, the current capital of the Republic of Macedonia. After having lived in Macedonia for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation, which in 2012 consisted of over 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries.
They run hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children’s and family counselling programmes; orphanages; and schools. Mother Teresa was the recipient of numerous honours, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. On 19 October 2003, she was beatified as “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta”.
-If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
-There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
-If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
-I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
-Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
-Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
-Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
-Peace begins with a smile..
-The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
-If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
