This is NOT from Mother Theresa, although that misinformation is all over the Internet. Correct quotation: "Answered prayers cause more tears than those that remain unanswered." Correct attribution: Teresa of Ávila. If it matters.

My mother used to say the we need to be careful what we wished for because we just might get it. I think sometimes we think we want something and pray for it and then when we get it we find it is not right for us or for some reason we end up not wanting it anyway.
