Sunday Citar - Mother Teresa



For today's Sunday Citar with Fresh Mommy, I am sharing these quotes from Mother Teresa. Selflessness defined Mother Teresa. Her words and example will open hearts and minds forever.

"Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.
"

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

"God doesn't require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.
"

"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
"
