Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.
How does a lamp burn? Through the continous 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, of acting. These are the true drops of love …
Be faithful in the small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
– Mother Teresa
