Mother Teresa: Loneliness is the most terrible poverty



True holiness consists in doing God’s work with a smile.
– Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997)

We think sometimes that poverty is only
being hungry, naked and homeless.
The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
– Mother Teresa, 1910 – 1997

God doesn’t require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.
– Mother Teresa, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (1910-1997)
In “Rolling Stone,” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Dec 1992.

What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
But if that drop was not in the ocean,
I think the ocean would be less
because of that missing drop.

– Mother Teresa (1910-1997) A Gift for God, “Carriers of Christ’s Love,” 1975.

I do not agree with the big way of doing things.
– Mother Teresa (1910-1997) A Gift for God, “Carriers of Christ’s Love,” 1975.

Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
– Mother Teresa
