"Beautiful, kind and compassionate - Mother Teresa. When I was young and struggling with depression, I could look at her face and feel all the love and compassion she had for humanity. It always gave me such strength and the will to keep going, to feel loved and more importantly, to volunteer in later years to help others. Such an inspiration."
