We can do no great things -- only small things with great love.
-- Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
People are unreasonable, illogical and self centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good,
people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful,
you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

-- Mother Teresa (1910-1997)

We need to find God, and sHe 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 (1910-1997, Nobel peace prize 1979)

A Gift for God, "Willing Slaves to the Will of God." (1975)
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
And Today?
Today is a gift, that's why we call it 'The Present'.

-- Babatunde Olatunji (1927-2003)
