Mother Teresa's "Philosophy of Life"


Life is an opportunity, avail it

Life is a beauty, admire it

Life is bliss, taste 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 costly, care for it

Life is a wealth, keep it

Life is love, enjoy it

Life is mystery, know 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, brace it

Life is an adventure, dare it

Life is luck, make it

Life is life, defend it.

It's wonderful advice. It doesn't matter who wrote it.

The words of Joni Mitchell sprang to my mind a few years ago - "you don't know what you've got, till its gone" - they are so, true.

I read somewhere that Mother Theresa constantly fought depression. Maybe she wrote this in one of those melancholy moments to life her spirits. Good advice, regardless of when she wrote it.

I think I'd be depressed, too, if I had to work with lepers, etc., all the time. This quote came out of a book of "A Thousand Suns" by a famous journalist, Dominique Lapierre. He wrote "Is Paris Burning?" and fought for Caryl Chessman's release from the death penalty. He (me too) was convinced of Chessman's innocence.

She must have been a tough old bird to live as long as she did where she did, accomplishing what she did, so if all this is what made it possible, I'd rather go by her philosophy than some of the others I've met up with lately.

My guess is, her "writers" were responsible for this, attributing it to her. I never heard her speak, so I don't know.

Don't we all know and admire it.

This is truly Mother Teresa's philosophy? How neat is that?

So I read. And I always believe what I read.
