Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
– Mother Teresa

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
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.
I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
