Mother Teresa needs no introduction. She was the celebrated mother of the poor and the helpless and she perfectly defined motherhood. Serving miserable was her motto of life and she just loved to help the miserable. She believed that It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Mother Teresa expressed her love or humanity through quotes:
When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her.
It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
“Like Jesus we belong to the world living not for ourselves but for others. The joy of the Lord is our strength.”
There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it.
The poor you may have right in your own family.
Speak tenderly to them.
Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile.
Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well.

Mother Teresa once quoted, “I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?”
“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”
Mother Teresa was unquestionably the Genuine Face of Humanity and Charity…
