A figure that still stands tall as an epitome of love, Mother Teresa’s service to humankind echoes more than 20 years even after her passing. Anointed ‘sainthood’ by Pope Francis in 2016, Mother Teresa’s charitable works includes setting up orphanages, schools, hospitals and homes for people with diseases such as leprosy, AIDS and tuberculosis. And as much as Mother Teresa exerts actions into her words, her words also do wonder in their own way-inspire millions across the globe.
On her 109th birth anniversary, here is a look at some of the most beautiful quotes on ‘love’ by the late saint:
‘’Intense love does not measure, it just gives’’
‘’Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service’’
‘’The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved’’
‘’We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion’’
‘’It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving’’.
