Inspiration from Mother Teresa

“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


There is no way I could have said this better myself. Mother Teresa is truly an inspiration to all when it comes to service. I look up to her as a role model for me when it comes to this project.

  1. Just Like a Twinkling Star
    (Tribute to Mother Teresa)

    By Apolinario B Villalobos

    Just like a tranquil smoothly flowing stream
    that ripples at the gentle touch of a falling leaf
    and nudge of a rock down its path; your silence so
    unpredictable and fragile like a thin sheet of ice
    cracks even at the feather’s touch.

    But just like a twinkling star
    your light constantly guides those wayward souls
    that roam the earth, those who need a helping hand
    to be there – a place they have been longing for
    but just hindered by unseen hands.

    Here you are
    untiringly and unselfishly extending a hand
    so that those who have fallen
    may again stand.

    (Manila, Philippines)
