    1. 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.-Mother TeresaWords to remember. And live by, if you can remember them.

    2. This is a book I randomly bought off a clearance shelf while in college and I just got around to reading it thanks to my book club. It is set up as a series of quotes and stories from Mother Teresa divided by topic (Prayer, Love, Giving, etc) which makes it easy to find just what you may be looking for. At the end of the book is an interview with her and then a time line of her life, both of which I found very interesting. I really enjoyed looking through her thoughts and learned a lot about her [...]

    3. I'd have to say this is actually a 3 1/2 star book! The first few chapters are absolutely incredible! Mother Teresa puts such on strong emphasis on charity and love. In brief summary. Love someone, and you love God. Serve someone and you serve God. Care for someone, have compassion for someone, etc and you've done it until Christ. About half way through the book started to feel and read a little more dry. She also shared some things that I strongly disagree with. Money is evil, and to be poor is [...]

    4. Upon his election, the new Pope chose to adopt the name of the legendary St. Francis, whose deep compassion for the poor inspires the new pontiff. We’ve been moved (Catholics and non-Catholics alike) by images of the Pope reminding us that spiritual leadership, first and foremost, is about showing us how to love, especially how to love the least lovable among us. (Isn’t there a story about St. Francis confronting his instinctual and conditioned repugnance at the sight of a leper and then tou [...]

    5. Through the quotes that compose this book, Mother Teresa lives up to her reputation as a loving, devoted Christian and fellow human. When I first picked up No Greater Love, I expected to be inspired to live like she lived, but instead I was challenged to live like God wants me to live. Mother Teresa is brilliant (and reassuring!) in her acknowledgement that her lifestyle is not for everyone and that each of us is called to serve in a different way. She uses both her enlightened thoughts and her [...]

    6. Mother Teresa, we all know, was an absolutely amazing woman and had the heart of hearts. Her book displays that amazingly. Her prose is not elegant, but it was painstakingly thoughtful and heartfelt. It challenges and inspires; should be read all. If this were on everyone's bookshelf of books they've read, maybe, just maybe, our world would be a better place. The heart of this amazingly woman shines through every page and will touch the hardest of hearts in the simplest and plainest ways, just a [...]

    7. so they say you can't chose a book by its cover right? i firmly believe that. No, just kidding, but in this case the book itself is just as pure and beautiful as the silky white front cover. As a missionary, a lover, a peacemaker, an ally of the poor and suffering, an icon of both the secular and church world and a tiny religious nun, just seeing the name Mother Teresa makes me smile. This book, in her own words, about the eternal Love and man's personal will of God, with a few short stories thr [...]

    8. We underestimate love, we might think that money, power and glory are the best, but inside of the human heart, love is the only real thing that we need.Her love for poor people was learned directly by her mother, and from the Virgin Mary she learned to have mercy, compassion came naturally from her love to God, and she learned, from her road with sick and poor people, to give everything she had in order to love them, entirely and with no desire of retribution.She walked the world, asking for pea [...]

    9. Incredible words of wisdom from a woman who clearly had a great love for Jesus and humanity. Possibly one of the most inspiring books I've read in a long time. Her message is simple but very profound and touching. This world would be a much better place if the rest of us could love with an ounce of the love that Mother Teresa expressed to those around her. I recommend this to everyone -- whether you are Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Agnostic or of any other creed I think we can all be in [...]

    10. This book challenged me to re-evaluate my own walk with Christ. When I see others, who do I see and how do I reach out to them? Ka Pow! It's a convicting read, and it presents a convincing argument for more devotion and doing more for others.

    11. I love this book, but, I love Mother Teresa She went to do her work in Calcutta, India because it was where the door was open to her love and kindness where they needed it most. It turned out that she was needed all over the world. This book is filled with Mother Teresa's words of wisdom and acts of kindness. I love that she was the angel for the sick, dying, and orphans. A women of true character

    12. So much of my book is marked. I will read this again. Mother Teresa found so much truth. One of my favorite things she wrote, "If we really want to conquer the world, we will not be able to do it with bombs or with other weapons of destruction. Let us conquer the world with our love. Let us interweave our lives with bonds of sacrifice and love, and it will be possible for us to conquer the world."

    13. Profound insight into a real international hero and icon. This book does not always demonstrate incredible layout or writing, but in it Mother Theresa provides her own thought-provoking perspective on the subject of love. The authentic words from this humble leader are truly inspirational given the life and experiences behind them all.For anyone who thinks they fully understand love especially the love that Jesus came to this world to exemplify, this book is for you.

    14. I love Mother Teresa and am so impressed by her life and the love she showed to others. I was fascinated to read the biographical details of her life in this book, and less interested in the Catholic doctrines that I couldn't quite understand. But her messages of love and prayer and of seeing Jesus in the poor people on the streets were wonderful.

    15. This was a refreshing way to head into 2017. To read the words of Mother Teresa is to try to understand a perspective so incredibly selfless. I think in our world of materialism and status her ideas are a breath of fresh air. A welcome perspective shift and some good pearls of wisdom.

    16. This book is helped me grow deeper in my faith and find love in the simple pleasures of life. She is truly a Saint.

    17. Mother Teresa's insights on love, service, forgiveness and prayer. She exemplified Christlike love, caring for the most unloved in society.

    18. This is a neat book. Mother Teresa is an example of love and compassion and humility. She was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910 in Skopje, Macedonia. When she was twelve she first felt her calling to a missionary life and by eighteen she was on her way to India. When she was 36 she heard a clear message that she "had to leave the convent and consecrate [herself] to helping the poor by living among them. It was a command (p. 195)." So, she did. This wasn't easy. She had to get special permission [...]

    19. Un maravilloso libro, escrito Santa Teresa de Calcuta, dirigido principalmente a las hermanas consagradas de su congregación, pero que debiera de ser un libro de cabecera para todo católico y personas no creyentes.Es un libro que se lee muy fácil y rápido y la enseñanza que deja es para iniciar en ella de inmediato.Lo recomiendo totalmente y más que su lectura, debería ser material de estudio.

    20. Saint Teresa of Calcutta brought me to the Catholic faith in 2004. So reading this brought back special memories. Couldn't put the book down, and was sad to finish it! What an honor to reflect on the writings of a canonized Saint. On a side noteWhen a high profile executive gave up on cleaning the restrooms in Calcutta and walked out saying wouldn't do it for money, she answered, you do it for something, I do it for someone. Read it intentionally and you will be transformed for life.

    21. I really enjoyed this book of quotes and anecdotes from Mother Teresa. She was a devout nun, so some of it got pretty preachy, but I loved her simple wisdom. I noted several passages as great quotes for further study. I also really enjoyed the interview at the end and the timeline of her life. What a great example of serving "the least of these my brethren".

    22. Absolutely loved this book and will read it again just for the joy of it. This is the 1st book I’ve read about Mother Teresa and she was obviously an amazing human being. Her insight and belief system was angelic. This is one of my favorite books ever.

    23. Hard to imagine envying someone who spent her entire adult life caring for the destitute and dying, but I am in awe of her strength, her certitude, and her peace of mind. The serene joy that pours forth from these pages is uplifting, encouraging, and challenging.

    24. I am absolutely in love with this book. I am in awee of this woman Mother Teresa. There was a time in my life when I had considered walking away from life as I knew it and walking into a monastery and starting life all over again, leaving myself behind and moving forward with a giving heart and a life of service. But, because I have children I just couldn't go this route. That being said, I still wonder daily how I can make a difference. How I can give of myself, my time and my heart to those in [...]
