"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
Peace begins with a smile. Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."
- Saint Teresa of Kolkata.
