Mother Teresa

Claim to fame: Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world, especially in Calcutta, India.

Quote: “Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.” – Mother Teresa
Fun fact: In 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitutes a threat to peace.” She didn’t attend the ceremonial banquet but asked that the $192,000 fund be given to the poor.
