Each one of us is merely a small instrument. When you look at the inner workings of electrical things, often you see small and big wires, new and old, cheap and expensive, lined up. Until the current passes through them, there will be no light. That wire is you and me. The current is God. We have the power to let the current pass through us, use us, produce the light of the world. Or we can refuse to be used and allow darkness to spread.
— Mother Teresa (via tonyexpressed)
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.
— Mother Teresa (via littledaviesworkins)
Some people will never “get you.” Do not spend eternity asking why. People will see you differently, just cherish those who lift your soul.
— Dodinsky (via moriarty)
Each person’s mission is a mission of love; begin in the place where you are, with the people closest to you. Make your homes centers of compassion, and forgive endlessly. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier.
— Mother Teresa (via beachedcoracles)
