A Simple Path
Written by Mother Theresa [more]
Preface: I first read this when it came out in 1995 and just skimmed it again. The most amazing thing about this woman who so changed our world is that her message is indeed so simple. Maybe that in itself is her lesson to we who care about carrying on her mission now long after she’s gone. Most interesting to me is that, as with all those I admire in service, Mother Theresa believed that the end game was her own peace of mind. That is, in my view, pursuing a noble cause is also the path to the most fulfilling life.
A favorite quote:
“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.”
