Mother and her words

"Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. "

"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. "

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

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

"Each one of them is Jesus in disguise. "

"Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful

"God doesn't require us to succeed; he only requires that you try. "

"Good works are links that form a chain of love. "

"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world. "

"I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness. "

"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love. "

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

"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. "

"I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor? "

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. "

"If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it. "

"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one. "

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them. "

"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love. "

"Intense love does not measure, it just gives. "

"It is a kingly act to assist the fallen. "

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

"It is impossible to walk rapidly and be unhappy. "

"Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love. "

"There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those. "
