Mother Teresa has many great quotes, everyone worldwide would agree with me she was a wonderful person that has made the world a better place to live in if we follow in her footsteps.

This is one of my favorite ones from Mother Teresa, born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, 26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997.

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.

Why does it move me?

My husband and I live well now, there were times when we had no money to buy food for our children, that is why I went work for 30 years in the rag trade, it took us fifty-five years to own our farm.

We had many heartaches and bad times in those years, dairy farming wasn’t easy bringing up five children and paying the mortgage every month, I will say it now.

“We deserved everything we have because we worked for it”.

The rest of this quote, about “being angry when I see waste”  there is far too much waste in the world, it must be stopped we cannot go on living and continue with this continued waste of food, clothes etc there are others that will use it.

“Save the World” don’t abuse it.

P.S. The photo at the top we don’t need a kingdom to live in, it may be nice. LOVE one another is the miracle that’s needed for happiness, without it, we have nothing.

  1. Great post. I agree completely. Recycling isn’t even done in the town where we live. I think we’re the only ones on our street who DO recycle and we pay for it out of our own pocket.
