Brief Biography

Mother Teresa was born Gonxha (Agnes) Bojaxhiu in Skopje, Yugoslavia, on August 27, 1910. Mother Teresa was her own person, startlingly independent, obedient, yet challenging some preconceived notions and expectations. Her own life story includes many illustrations of her willingness to listen to and follow her own conscience, even when it seemed to contradict what was expected. - American Catholic

          The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion, because if a mother can kill her own child what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

                                We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

                                        I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.

                                          People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.

                                              I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ for me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment.

                                                It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.

                                                  There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation than for bread.

                                                    Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

                                                      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.

                                                          I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
