As I understand it, when Mother Theresa was asked if she would march in an anti-war protest, she declined. She said, however, that she would march for peace. We manifest what we focus on. Focusing on war even in the ‘anti’ form, is still bringing war to mind.
Here follow 13 quotes – a Baker’s Dozen! – from Mother Theresa, she who focused on and manifested a great deal of love and peace.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
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.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
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.
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.
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Spread the word … NOT the icing!
