10 Quotes By Mother Teresa On Life, Love, And Happiness

One of the most prominent figures of the 20th century, Mother Teresa, is a symbol of love, care, and compassion for the whole world. Her exemplary service for the destitute, the message of spreading love, and Mother Teresa quotes have been an inspiration for millions across the globe.

Born on August 26, 1910, at Skopje, North Macedonia, Mother Teresa moved to India at the age of 19, spent a significant part of her life in India, and spent decades working for the poorest of the poor in Calcutta and adjoining areas.


Mother Teresa founded the ‘Missionaries Of Charity’ – an organization that has been working for the helpless and needy, including refugees, former prostitutes, the mentally ill, sick children, abandoned children, lepers, people with AIDS, and the aged. Her vow to give wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor has been central to the philosophy of several social workers working for the oppressed.

Her work for the poorest of poor in India got honored with the Padma Shri in 1962, Ramon Magsaysay Peace Prize in 1962, International Noble Peace Prize in 1979, and the Bharat Ratna in 1980. Her relentless dedication and hard work has been lauded from all quarters and believed to be one of the highest examples of selfless service to humanity.
