Peace begins with a... Peace begins with a smile. I will never understand all the good that a simple smile can accomplish.
Copy
People are generally irrational,... People are generally irrational, unreasonable and selfish. They deserve to be loved, anyway.
Copy
Please choose the way... Please choose the way of peace. In the short term there may be winners and losers in this war that we all dread. But that never can, or never will justify the suffering, pain and loss of life your weapons will cause.
Copy
Prayer is not asking.... Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
Copy
Profound joy of the... Profound joy of the heart is like a magnet that indicates the path of life.
Copy
Smile at each other.... Smile at each other. Smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other – it doesn’t matter who it is – and that will help to grow up in greater love for each other.
Copy
Some people come in... Some people come in our life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons.
Copy
Spread love everywhere you... Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
Copy
Spread love everywhere you... Spread love everywhere you go; first of all in your house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Copy
Spread the love of... Spread the love of God through your life but only use words when necessary.
Copy
Stay where you are.... Stay where you are. Find your own Calcutta. Find the sick, the suffering, and the lonely right where you are—in your own homes and in your own families, in your workplaces and in your schools.
Copy
The beginning of prayer... The beginning of prayer is silence. If we really want to pray we must first learn to listen, for in the silence of the heart God speaks. And to be able to see that silence, to be able to hear God we need a clean heart; for a clean heart can see God, can hear God, can listen to God; and then only from the fullness of our heart can we speak to God. But we cannot speak unless we have listened, unless we have made that connection with God in the silence of our heart.
Copy
The biggest disease today... The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
Copy
The fruit of love... The fruit of love is service, which is compassion in action.
Copy
The good you do... The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
Copy
The greatest disease in... The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God. 
Copy
The hunger for love... The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Copy
The miracle is not... The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
Copy
The more you have,... The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance. It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.
Copy
The most terrible poverty... The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.
Copy
The openness of our... The openness of our hearts and minds can be measured by how wide we draw the circle of what we call family.
Copy
The poor are great!... The poor are great! The poor are wonderful! The poor are very generous! They give us much more than what we give them.
Copy
The success of love... The success of love is in the loving – it is not in the result of loving. Of course it is natural in love to want the best for the other person, but whether it turns out that way or not does NOT determine the value of what we have done.
Copy
There are many people... There are many people who can do big things, but there are very few people who will do the small things.
Copy
There are no great... There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
Copy
There is a light... 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.
Copy
There is more hunger... There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.
Copy
There is no key... There is no key to happiness; the door is always open.
Copy
There must be a... There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
Copy
Together we can do... Together we can do great things.
Copy
We do not need... We do not need guns and bombs to bring peace, we need love and compassion.
Copy
We fear the future... We fear the future because we are wasting today.
Copy
We have not come... We have not come into the world to be numbered; we have been created for a purpose; for great things: to love and be loved.
Copy
We must make our... We must make our homes centers of compassion and forgive endlessly.
Copy
We must not be... We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, killings, of wars, or of hatred… If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?
Copy
We need to find... We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Copy
We ourselves feel that... We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Copy
We shall never know... We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Copy
We think sometimes that... We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
Copy
What can you do... What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.
Copy
What you spend years... What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight; build it anyway.
Copy
When you don’t have... When you don’t have anything, then you have everything.
Copy
Whenever you share love... Whenever you share love with others, you’ll notice the peace that comes to you and to them.
Copy
Without patience, we will... Without patience, we will learn less in life. We will see less. We will feel less. We will hear less. Ironically, rush and more usually mean less.
Copy
Words which do not... Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
Copy
Work without love is... Work without love is slavery.
Copy
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow... Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Copy
You are greater than... You are greater than you know.
Copy
Your true character is... Your true character is most accurately measured by how you treat those who can do ‘Nothing’ for you.
