Kloke ord og sitater for enhver anledning

Kjære medmenneske april 14, 2013

Velg dine ord med omhu og takt
ord – de kan ha virkelig makt.
Hva som blir sagt i alvor og skjemt,
kan brenne seg fast, og aldri bli glemt
… Mye kan bli sagt som virkelig sårer
og bringe fram såre og bitre tårer.

Misforståelser og vonde ord,
kan gi grobunn til ondskap – slik at den gror.
Vi kan ha , for lett til å klandre,
men trenger – vi være slik mot hverandre?

Omsorg og kjærlighet – må livet ha,
det trengs for å leve – og ha det bra.
Misunnelse og baktalelse i lange baner
sårer mye mer – enn vi kanskje aner.

Ingen er heldigvis ”helt perfekte”
det tror jeg er vanskelig å benekte?
Gi ikke ris til egen bak,-
det er alltid to sider i samme sak.

Sløs med omsorg, kjærlighet, tilgivelse
og å skape glede – og fred.
For ingen kjenner dagen, før solen går ned..

Letter from mother to daughter

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter: «My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story… night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionaly lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter. «

Hva ser du søster? oktober 30, 2010

Dette diktet skal være funnet i nattbordskuffen
til en gammel dame på et engelsk pleiehjem
– etter at hun var død:

.

Hva ser du søster i din stue?
En gammel, sur og beværlig frue,
usikker på hånden og fjern i blikket,
litt griset og rotet hvor hun har ligget.
Du snakker høyt, men hun hører deg ikke,
hun sikler og hoster, har snue og hikke.
Hun takker deg ikke for alt det du gjør,
men klager og syter, og har dårlig humør.

.

Er det hva du tenker? Er det hva du ser?
Lukk øynene opp og SE – det er mer.
Nå skal jeg fortelle deg hvem jeg er,
den gamle piken som ligger her.

.

Jeg er pike på 10 i et lykkelig hjem,
med foreldre og søsken – jeg elsker dem!

.

Jeg er en ungmø på 16 med hjerte som banker,
av håp og drøm og romantiske tanker.

.

Jeg er brud på 20 med blussende kinn,
mitt eget går jeg lykkelig inn.

.

Jeg er mor med små barn, jeg bygger et hjem
mot alt som er vondt vil jeg verne dem.
Og barna vokser, med gråt og latter
Så blir de store og så er vi atter
to voksne alene som nyter freden
og trøster hverandre og deler gleden
når vi blir femti og barnebarn kommer
og bringer uro og latter hver sommer.

.

Hva ser du søster? En tung og senil og trett gammel skrott?
-Nei, prøv en gang til” – Se bedre etter – se om du kan finne;
et barn, en brud, en mor – en kvinne!
Se meg som sitter der innerst inne!
Det er MEG du må prøve å se – og finne!

 

Kloke ord fra Mor Teresa

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Mother Teresa

.

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Mother Teresa

.

Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.
Mother Teresa

.

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
Mother Teresa

.

I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
Mother Teresa

.

I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
Mother Teresa

.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Mother Teresa

.

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Mother Teresa

.

If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Mother Teresa

.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Mother Teresa

.

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
Mother Teresa

.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
Mother Teresa

.

Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
Mother Teresa

.

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Mother Teresa

.

Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus.
Mother Teresa

.

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Mother Teresa

.

Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.
Mother Teresa

.

Peace begins with a smile.
Mother Teresa

.

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
Mother Teresa

.

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
Mother Teresa

.

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
Mother Teresa

.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Mother Teresa

.

The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
Mother Teresa

.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.
Mother Teresa

.

There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
Mother Teresa

.

There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
Mother Teresa

.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa

.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Mother Teresa

.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Mother Teresa

.

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
Mother Teresa

 

Fremtidens verden april 11, 2010

Fremtidens verden, som vi nå forsøker å trygge, må bygges på fire former for menneskelig frihet. Den første er tale- og ytringsfrihet – overalt i verden. Den andre er det enkelte menneskes rett til å dyrke Gud på den måten det selv vil – overalt i verden. Den tredje er frihet fra nød – overalt i verden. Den fjerde er frihet fra frykt.

(Franklin D. Roosevelt)
