An inspirational quote found written on the walls of the home where Mother Teresa lived and cared for others in Calcutta. Simple, true and profound.
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) She ministered to those who no one else was willing to reach out to. The Lepers, the destitute, the babies that had been aborted late in pregnancy. She depended on God and listened to him. She stood up for her faith, and went out from the convent. She followed God until the day she died. I want to be this kind of woman.
"Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway." Mother Teresa
