Words of Wisdom to Live By

Spread love everywhere you go - first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbour. Let no one come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile and kindness in your warm greeting. All that we need to know, all the wisdom of the cosmos, we will find in our own heart.

If you give what you do not need, it isn't giving.

The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.

Love cannot remain by itself - it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action and that action is service. Whatever form we are, able or disabled, rich or poor, it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing; a lifelong sharing of love with others. Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.What you keep to yourself, you lose.

What you give away, you keep forever.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.

- Mother Teresa
