Sunday Citar



"The Annunciation" - Henry Ossawa Tanner


Quotes of Mother Teresa:

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

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.

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.

Mother Teresa was an inspiration of true Christianly love, and will be recorded in history as such. She is a great Saint of exceptional worth, which is massively evidenced in her good deeds.

Thank you for some wonderful quotes.

Love love. Bye.

I've been reading a lot lately about being still on various blogs. I think the universe is trying to tell me something :-)

Yes. Silence is necessary for the heart to be still and know, isn't it? I'll be working on this until the day I leave this planet, I'm sure. Wonderful quotes!

I love this quote from Mother Theresa- I totally agree that God can be found in anything that is beautiful. I have a book of hers that is just filled with quotes.

Fantastic, inspiring quotes. Loved the one about silence, for it is in silence we come closest to hearing the soft whisper of God's voice.

What a brilliant, moving, thoughtful, inspiring quote from an extraordinary woman. Mother Teresa flowed with wisdom. Hey, it takes a pretty wise woman to spot wisdom. As we say in the hood, "Game knows Game". LOL
