Saint Quotes

Most popular saint quotes

Saint and Martyr rule from the tomb.
Can one be a saint if God does not exist?
They saint you for the miracles, not the sermons.
Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.

sin

Saints should always be judged guilty until they are proved innocent.
Many of the insights of the saint stem from his experience as a sinner.
Mistaken saints, who thought to save
Their souls, by making life a grave.
And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With odd old ends stol'n forth of holy writ,
And seem a saint when most I play the devil.
As no roads are so rough as those that have just been mended, so no sinners are so intolerant as those that have just turned saints.
The saints are what they are, not because their sanctity makes them admirable to others, but because the gift of sainthood makes it possible for them to admire everybody else.
For the wonderful thing about saints is that they were human. They lost their tempers, got hungry, scolded God, were egotistical or testy or impatient in their turns, made mistakes and regretted them. Still they went on doggedly blundering toward heaven.
