Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service
A journalist observed Mother Theresa changing the bandage of a leper, full of blood and puss.
He said, “I would not do this for a million dollars!”
Mother Theresa quipped back, “I would not do it for a million dollars either.” (Of course, she did it out of compassion.)
