"The Small Things in Daily Life" by Mother Teresa

Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is love without getting tired.

How does a lamp burn? Through the continuous input of small drops of oil. My daughters, what are these drops of oil in our lamps? They are the small things of daily life: faithfulness, punctuality, small words of kindness, a thought for others, our way of being silent, of looking, of speaking, and of acting. These are the true drops of love...

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Mother Teresa
