9 Quotes from Mother Teresa That’ll Make You a Better Person

Everybody knows the name Mother Teresa. Not because she was on TV or grotesquely wealthy or had 2 million twitter followers but simply because she was good.


A Catholic nun Mother Teresa was born in Macedonia and was of Albanian descent. She got the call at the age of 12 on a pilgrimage to the Church of the Black Madonna in Letnice and decisively swiped right, took the call and became a nun at the age of 18. Working for years in a girls’ school in Calcutta, Mother Teresa received her ‘call within a call’, dedicating her whole life to caring for the less fortunate in society, even receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for her work.


One of the greatest humanitarians of the 20th century, Mother Teresa was humble to the end. On her death bed she said, “By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.”

While I don’t think we should all go around grinning like second-hand car salesmen, I do think Mother Teresa had a point. It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cost anything and it can really make someone’s day. Give it a try.
