A woman who needs very less introduction was an Albanian missionary who devoted her life to help people. She spread the message of love, humanity and peace to the world. She is considered the most influential person and her life itself is the messages for the billions of us.

It’s the 104th anniversary of the birth of Mother Teresa. To honor the greatest humanitarian the world has ever seen we have come up with 10 of her messages.

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

This is the most heard and most preached line in the world. More often we tend to perceive the words and actions of a person and in this venture of judgement we miss out the opportunity to appreciate the person. The more you judge a person the more you fall out from him and the more you love him the more you find the beauty in him.

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.

I asked a friend “Why do you smile at strangers?” She said “I want to see them at their best” Well that was one beautiful answer and I have started smiling more often 🙂
Every time you smile at someone you are spreading a warm message of love which returns back to you.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

The actions of one Mahatma, one Mother Teresa, one Vivekananda, one Mandela has revolutionized the world. Your sole action to change the world will influence 10 others, those 10 others will influence 100 others and it goes on exponentially.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

A simple message of love, a warm hug, a beautiful smile can bring difference in a person’s life. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

Yesterday has packed a set of beautiful experiences and tomorrow has a set of beautiful hopes and today is the time to live, to work and to progress.

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.

Living the moment brings you the reverence of the beautiful life.

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 true enemies: Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank people will try to cheat you: Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight: Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous of you: Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten by tomorrow: Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give your best anyway.

If there is something that you can give it to the world is to give the best of yourself. This remind me of the lines by Ralph Waldo Emerson “To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived – that is to have succeeded”

Go out into the world today and love the people you meet. Let your presence light new light in the hearts of people.

When people come to you the best thing you can do is to make them feel good

To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.

Keep your dreams alive by doing what you want to do with the belief of seeing it happen one day.

Some people come in our life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons.

You are never with loss. You always have something to learn from every person you meet in life.

We'd love to hear your thoughts below..

  1. Great compilation Vidya. All hail to her (Mother Teresa) spirits. She has definitely touched many hearts and lives. A selfless lady. The world is yet to see another Mother Teresa. But hopefully each one of us can be her reflection in some ways.

  2. Mother’s simplicity and authenticity were admirable. She seldom spoke great things. But pearls of wisdom dropped because of the profound love that lay in her heart.

    • Thank you Matheikal :). I think she was one among the very few who were rich in actions and less on words. Well, I guess that is why we say actions speak louder than any words ever can 🙂

  3. My favourite quote of her is “I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”
