Saint quotes by Wilford Woodruff
#1. Ours is no ordinary calling. Great opportunities and privileges have been bestowed upon us. To us, as a people, has been entrusted the grand and glorious labor of laying the foundation of the kingdom of God upon the earth. Every act of our lives should be performed with this in view. Nothing should be done by anyone calling himself a Latter-day Saint that will conflict with the policy which God has announced as proper to be adopted in establishing that kingdom (The Discourses of Wilford Woodruff, p. 125). #Quote by Wilford Woodruff
Saint quotes by Truman Capote
#2. But I'm not a saint yet. I'm an alcoholic. I'm a drug addict. I'm homosexual. I'm a genius. #Quote by Truman Capote
Saint quotes by Brigham Young
#3. It is the duty of a Saint of God to gain all the influence he can on this earth, and to use every particle of that influence to do good. #Quote by Brigham Young
Saint quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#4. If the Lord should give you power to raise the dead, He would give much less than He does when he bestows suffering. By miracles you would make yourself debtor to Him, while by suffering He may become debtor to you. And even if sufferings had no other reward than being able to bear something for that God who loves you, is not this a great reward and a sufficient remuneration? Whoever loves, understands what I say. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Saint quotes by Rhys Bowen
#5. Llanfair - home if Saint Gelert's grave. We should call ourselves that, like that other Llanfair.'
'You mean the other Llanfair over the Anglesey; the one that claims to have the longest name in the world?' Barry-the-Bucket asked.
'That's exactly what I mean', Evans-the-Meat said grandly. 'If they can call themselves Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, which we all know means nothing more important than Saint Mary's church in the hollow of white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and Saint Tisilio's church near the red cave, then why shouldn't we start calling ourselves Llanfair-up-on-the-pass-with-the-brook-running-through-it-and-Saint-Gelert's-grave-right-above-it? #Quote by Rhys Bowen
Saint quotes by Susanna Clarke
#6. It was difficult to image quite where this gentleman [a statue] could have come from: he was a little too cheerful for a saint in a church and not quite comical enough for a coffee-house sign. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Saint quotes by Deborah Wells
#7. The dark man is ubiquitous. People from all times and in all places have recorded their experiences of him in stories, poems, paintings, songs, stone, dance, crafts and prayers. Saint or sinner, scientist or theologian, agnostic or true believer, it makes little difference as the dark man has walked beside us since the very beginning and he will stay with us until the end. He is so intrinsic to the human experience that everyone has at least one dark man story to tell... #Quote by Deborah Wells
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#8. Go and have another look at the roses. And you will understand that yours is indeed unique in all the world. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Umberto Eco
#9. Excessive love of God or of the truth, as the heretic is born from the saint and the possessed from the seer. Fear prophets, Adso, and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them. Jorge did #Quote by Umberto Eco
Saint quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#10. The Christian saints did not merely resemble the old polytheistic gods. Often they were these very same gods in disguise. For example, the chief goddess of Celtic Ireland prior to the coming of Christianity was Brigid. When Ireland was Christianised, Brigid too was baptised. She became St Brigit, who to this day is the most revered saint in Catholic Ireland. The #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Saint quotes by Frederick Lenz
#11. We call someone a saint in a world in which everyone is abnormal. The normal person becomes extraordinary. But there's nothing extraordinary about being a saint, that's just someone who's somewhat online with life. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Saint quotes by Amy Andrews
#12. A saint? Tanner Stone was the anti-Christ. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Saint quotes by Brigham Young
#13. How much unbelief exists in the minds of the Latter-day Saints in regard to one particular doctrine which I revealed to them, and which God revealed to me - namely that Adam is our Father and God - ... #Quote by Brigham Young
Saint quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#14. Only the saints would joke so about the gods, because it was either joke or scream, and they alone knew it was all the same to the gods. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Saint quotes by Deirdre O'Kane
#15. Yves Saint Laurent will never go out of business so long as I'm buying mountains of Touche Eclat. #Quote by Deirdre O'Kane
Saint quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#16. I recommend to you holy simplicity. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#17. True virtue has no limits, but goes on and on, and especially holy charity, which is the virtue of virtues, and which having a definite object, would become infinite if it could meet with a heart capable of infinity. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#18. Whereas the angel "came" to Mary (Lk 1:28), he merely appears to Joseph in a dream - admittedly a dream that is real and reveals what is real. Once again this shows us an essential quality of the figure of Saint Joseph: his capacity to perceive the divine and his ability to discern. Only a man who is inwardly watchful for the divine, only someone with a real sensitivity for God and his ways, can receive God's message in this way. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#19. He who commends the nature of the soul as the supreme good, and condemns the nature of the flesh as evil, at once both carnally desires the soul, and carnally flies the flesh, because he feels thus from human vanity, not from divine truth. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Frank Langella
#20. I'm hardly a saint. #Quote by Frank Langella
Saint quotes by
#21. I rise today
with the power of God to pilot me,
God's strength to sustain me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look ahead for me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to protect me,
God's way before me,
God's shield to defend me,
God's host to deliver me,
from snares of devils,
from evil temptations,
from nature's failings,
from all who wish to harm me,
far or near,
alone and in a crowd. #Quote by "Saint Patrick's Breastplate " Old Irish Eighth-century Prayer
Saint quotes by Eva Ibbotson
#22. There had, of course, been no golden-haired boys; there hadn't been any boys at all. What there had been was a leper colony, run by the Brothers of Saint Patrick, a group of Irish missionaries to whom the crows had been sent. #Quote by Eva Ibbotson
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#23. The men where you live," said the little prince, "raise five thousand roses in the same garden– and they do not find in it what they are looking for."
"They do not find it," I replied.
"And yet what they are looking for could be found in one single rose, or in a little water. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Sarah Dessen
#24. Just because a person isn't talking about something doesn't mean it's not on their mind. Often, in fact, it's why they won't speak of it. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#25. Each time I stopped I stripped myself of something vitally important. I was, becoming my own enemy! And I can't tell you how it hurt me when I found that out. What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#26. Saint Delphi my ass. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#27. Flowers are so inconsistent! #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Robert Southwell
#28. I wealthiest am when richest in remorse. #Quote by Robert Southwell
Saint quotes by Elizabeth Ann Seton
#29. The first end I propose in our daily work is to do the will of God; secondly, to do it in the manner he wills it; and thirdly to do it because it is his will. #Quote by Elizabeth Ann Seton
Saint quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#30. It is the mark of a true saint that his sorrows remind him of his sins, and his sorrow for sin drives him to his God. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Saint quotes by Val Kilmer
#31. It's so early do you want some coffee or something? #Quote by Val Kilmer
Saint quotes by Pio Of Pietrelcina
#32. He who does not meditate acts as one who never looks into the mirror and so does not bother to put himself in order, since he can be dirty without knowing it. The person who meditates and turns his thoughts to God who is the mirror of the soul, seeks to know his defects and tries to correct them, moderates himself in his impulses and puts his conscience in order. #Quote by Pio Of Pietrelcina
Saint quotes by Alice Cary
#33. Not what we think, but what we do, / Makes saints of us: all stiff and cold, / The outlines of the corpse show through / The cloth of gold. #Quote by Alice Cary
Saint quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#34. Go in all simplicity; do not be anxious to win a quiet mind, and it will be all the quieter. Do not examine so closely into the progress of your soul. Do not crave too much to be perfect, but let your spiritual life beformed by your duties, and by the actions which are called forth by circumstances. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#35. Two loves have made two different cities: self-love hath made a terrestrial city, which rises in contempt of God; and Divine Love hath made a celestial one, which rises in contempt of self. The former glories in itself - the latter in God. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#36. Intelligence is an angel. Virtue is a saint. Courage is a hero. Love is God. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Saint quotes by Cesar Vichard De Saint-Real
#37. By the same means we do not always arrive at the same ends. #Quote by Cesar Vichard De Saint-Real
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#38. The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#39. Many can give money to those in need, but to personally serve the needy readily, out of love, and in a fraternal spirit, requires a truly great soul. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Saint quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#40. This is what an excellent teacher does; he does not follow his disciples' fancy everywhere, but leads them to his own mind, and pulls up the thorns, and then puts the seed in, and does not answer at once in all cases to the questions put to him. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Saint quotes by Aldous Huxley
#41. If one is not oneself a sage or saint, the best thing one can do is to study the words of those who were. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Saint quotes by Michael Scott
#42. The small group hugged one another quickly. Although nothing was said, they knew this could be the last time they ever saw one another again.
Saint-Germain kissed Joan before they parted. "I love you," he said softly.
She nodded, slate-grey eyes shimmering behind tears.
"When all this is over, I suggest we go on a second honeymoon," he said.
"I'd like that." Joan smiled. "Hawaii is always nice at this time of year. And you do know I love it there."
Saint-Germain shook his head. "We're not going anywhere that has a volcano."
"I love you," she whispered, and turned away before they could see each other cry. #Quote by Michael Scott
Saint quotes by Saint Ambrose
#43. No one is good but God alone. What is good is therefore divine, what is divine is therefore good. #Quote by Saint Ambrose
Saint quotes by Alphonsus Liguori
#44. The more a person loves God, the more reason he has to hope in Him. This hope produces in the Saints an unutterable peace, which they preserve even in adversity, because as they love God, and know how beautiful He is to those who love Him, they place all their confidence and find all their repose in Him alone. #Quote by Alphonsus Liguori
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#45. When regard for truth has been broken down or even slightly weakened, all things will remain doubtful. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#46. One can be a brother only in something. Where there is no tie that binds men, men are not united but merely lined up. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Lucille Clifton
#47. Blessing the boats
(at saint mary's)
may the tide
that is entering even now
the lip of our understanding
carry you out
beyond the face of fear
may you kiss
the wind then turn from it
certain that it will
love your back
may you
open your eyes to water
water waving forever
and may you in your innocence
sail through this to that #Quote by Lucille Clifton

Saint quotes by Rajneesh
#49. That is again the same story played on a more subtle level. That's what the religious people have been doing down the ages - pious egoists they have been. They have made their ego even more decorated; it has taken the color of religion and holiness. Your ego is better than the ego of a saint; your ego is better, far better - because your ego is very gross, and the gross ego can be understood and dropped more easily than the subtle. The subtle ego goes on playing such games that it is very difficult. One will need absolute awareness to watch it. #Quote by Rajneesh
Saint quotes by Sun Myung Moon
#50. Every religious pioneer, including Jesus Christ, was persecuted by his contemporaries. But once people understand me, their turn can be dramatic like Saint Paul's. #Quote by Sun Myung Moon
Saint quotes by Shirley Eaton
#51. I worked with Roger Moore on three episodes of 'The Saint.' He is a lovely man, a good director, and was my favourite actor to work with. #Quote by Shirley Eaton
Saint quotes by Leon Bloy
#52. The only real sadness, the only real failure, the only great tragedy in life, is not to become a saint. #Quote by Leon Bloy
Saint quotes by J.I. Packer
#53. To know that nothing happens in God's world apart from God's will may frighten the godless, but it stabilizes the saints. #Quote by J.I. Packer
Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#54. He who sows courtesy reaps friendship. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#55. When you have become God's in the measure he desires, then he himself will bestow you upon others; unless, to your greater glory, he chooses to keep you all to himself. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#56. God hath not revealed anything to Joseph, but what he will make known unto the Twelve, and even the least Saint may know all things as fast as he is able to bear them ... #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Saint quotes by Patrick Henry
#57. Give me liberty or give me death.
[From a speech given at Saint John's Church in Richmond, Virginia on March 23, 1775 to the Virginia House of Burgesses; as first published in print in 1817 in William Wirt's Life and Character of Patrick Henry.] #Quote by Patrick Henry
Saint quotes by Eva Le Gallienne
#58. People who are born even-tempered, placid and untroubled - secure from violent passions or temptations to evil - those who have never needed to struggle all night with the Angel to emerge lame but victorious at dawn, never become great saints. #Quote by Eva Le Gallienne
Saint quotes by Pope Francis
#59. May both of them [Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II] teach us not to be scandalized by the wounds of Christ and to enter ever more deeply into the mystery of divine mercy, which always hopes and always forgives, because it always loves. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint quotes by Gerhard Tersteegen
#60. Let none, however difficult the circumstances, consider himself as debarred from the way of holiness. Have we but God and the cross of Christ, we have the means for becoming altogether holy in our walk and conversation. What dungeon is there that can shut us out from this? Only let us use the present location and means faithfully and truly, taking them from God's hand, and we shall find him able to free us from all that is really a hindrance. Let us each one desire to be a saint in his own place and calling, instead of building 'castles in the air' of future holiness. #Quote by Gerhard Tersteegen
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#61. Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown, that terror becomes the known. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#62. We must always be on guard lest, under the pretext of keeping one commandment, we be found breaking another. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#63. Do not be troubled because you have not great virtues. God made a million spears of grass where He made one tree. The earth is fringed and carpeted, not with forests, but with grasses. Only have enough of little virtues and common fidelities, and you need not mourn because you are neither a hero or a saint. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Saint quotes by Cassandra Clare
#64. One did not turn down an invitation from Saint Cloud. At least, one didn't if one wanted to continue living contentedly in Paris. Vampires took offense so easily - and Parisian vampires were the worst of all. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Saint quotes by Alexander McQueen
#65. Fashions fade, style is eternal. - Yves Saint-LaurentThe most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you've got to have a good spirit on the inside. That's what's really going to make you look like you're ready to rock the world. - Alicia KeysIt's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together. #Quote by Alexander McQueen
Saint quotes by Ellis Peters
#66. One century's saint is the next century's heretic ... and one century's heretic is the next century's saint. It is as well to think long and calmly before affixing either name to any man. #Quote by Ellis Peters
Saint quotes by L.J. Shen
#67. He brought color into my life. Acrylic? Oil? It didn't even matter. He always thought of himself as blackness, but the truth was, he injected so many different pigments into my existence. #Quote by L.J. Shen
Saint quotes by K.M. Alexander
#68. The spectacle shop was old, long, and narrow, with a glass front and a small thin door that opened onto a somewhat busy avenue in the antiques district on the South side of Lovat. It was a quiet enough area, away from the rougher warrens, but not particularly elevated. Across the cramped street hawkers sold vases, while up the road outside a rug merchant's shop a man sold antique suits. There was also Dubois' new storefront to the East; he dealt in religious artifacts and trinkets. The shopkeep hadn't liked when he had moved in; it had somehow changed the feel of the warren. Odd folks had started showing up shortly after Saint Olmstead Religious Antiques opened: black-clad priests, Hasturians in yellow robes, and a few Deeper cultists dressed in their gray sackcloth rags. It had set the entire warren on edge. #Quote by K.M. Alexander
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#69. When someone blushes, doesn't that mean 'yes'? #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#70. What we need is a cup of understanding, a barrel of love, and an ocean of patience. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint quotes by Dorotheus Of Gaza
#71. In the mercy of God, the little thing done with humility will enable us to be found in the same place as the saints who have labored much and been true servants of God. #Quote by Dorotheus Of Gaza
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#72. Watch out for the Baobabs! #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery

Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#74. It is always in the midst, in the epicenter, of your troubles that you find serenity. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Dianne Connelly
#75. As an acupuncture practitioner in the treatment room, I have learned to use the needle as an opening to life for another, the needle as a call to the saint - the holy whole of the other, including all the phenomena, all the "showing," all the constellationof existence, including what we have come to name "disease." To see only "disease" is to be picking the pocket! #Quote by Dianne Connelly
Saint quotes by Franz Wright
#76. There are people who recall my father as a saint and a monster. I'm quite sure I will share the same fate. #Quote by Franz Wright
Saint quotes by Anton Chekhov
#77. All saints have past and all sinners have a future. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Saint quotes by James Lee Burke
#78. Saint Augustine once admonished that we should never use the truth to injure. I believe there are dark and uncertain moments in our lives when it's not wrong for each of us to feel that he wrote those words especially for us. #Quote by James Lee Burke
Saint quotes by Francis Of Assisi
#79. We should have no more use or regard for money in any of its forms than we have for dust. Those who think it is worth more, or who are greedy for it, expose themselves to the danger of being deceived by the Devil. #Quote by Francis Of Assisi
Saint quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#80. Intemperance is a hydra with a hundred heads. She never stalks abroad unaccompanied with impurity, anger, and the most infamous profligacies. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#81. The hairsplitting difference between formed and unformed makes no difference to us. Whoever deliberately commits abortion is subject to the penalty for homicide. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by J.R. Ward
#82. I'm an angel not a frickin' saint. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Saint quotes by Pope Clement I
#83. Let us teach the young in the school of the fear of the Lord. #Quote by Pope Clement I
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#84. The heart of man is restless until he finds rest in Thee. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#85. All the efforts of the human mind cannot exhaust the essence of a single fly. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#86. How difficult it is to advance at one's own internal rhythm when one is constantly fighting against the inertia of the material world. Everything is always on the verge of stopping. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#87. Does God proclaim Himself in the wonders of creation? No. All things proclaim Him, all things speak. Their beauty is the voice by which they announce God, by which they sing, It is you who made me beautiful, not me myself but you. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#88. Examine from time to time what are the dominant passions of your soul, and having ascertained this, mold your life, so that in thought, word, and deed you may as far as possible counteract them. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Saint quotes by Gertrude Stein
#89. A saint is one to be for two when three and you make five and two and cover. A at most. Saint saint a saint. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Saint quotes by Ken Wilber
#90. I'm not nearly the saint some of my fans imagine and I'm nowhere near the devil my detractors wish, so you simply take both of those with a grain of salt. #Quote by Ken Wilber
Saint quotes by Jean-Francois De Saint-Lambert
#91. Genius: Range of mind, power of imagination, and responsiveness of soul: this is genius. The man of genius has a soul with greater range, can therefore be struck by the feelings of all beings, is concerned with everything in nature, and never receives an idea that does not evoke a feeling. Everything stirs him and everything is retained within him.
When the soul has been moved by an object itself, it is even more affected by the memory of the object. But in a man of genius imagination goes further: it recalls ideas with a more vivid feeling than it received them, because to these ideas are connected a thousand others more appropriate to arouse the feeling. #Quote by Jean-Francois De Saint-Lambert
Saint quotes by Oswald Chambers
#92. The circumstances of a saint's life are ordained of God. In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance. God by His providence brings you into circumstances that you can't understand at all, but the Spirit of God understands. God brings you to places, among people, and into certain conditions to accomplish a definite purpose through the intercession of the Spirit in you. Never put yourself in front of your circumstances and say, "I'm going to be my own providence here; I will watch this closely, or protect myself from that." All your circumstances are in the hand of God, and therefore you don't ever have to think they are unnatural or unique. Your part in intercessory prayer is not to agonize over how to intercede, but to use the everyday circumstances and people God puts around you by His providence to bring them before His throne, and to allow the Spirit in you the opportunity to intercede for them. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Saint quotes by John Climacus
#93. Someone who is elated with wine speaks the truth on all subjects, even without meaning to. In the same way, anyone who is inebriated with the spirit of penitence will never be able to tell lies. #Quote by John Climacus
Saint quotes by Graham Greene
#94. For if this God exists, I thought, and if even you – with your lusts and your adulteries and the timid lies you used to tell – can change like this, we could all be saints by leaping as you leapt, by shutting the eyes and leaping once and for all: if you are a saint, it's not so difficult to be a saint. It's something He can demand of any of us, leap. #Quote by Graham Greene
Saint quotes by Oswald Chambers
#95. The test of the life of a saint is not success, but faithfulness in human life as it actually is. We will set up success in Christian work as the aim; the aim is to manifest the glory of God in human life, to live the life hid with Christ in God in human conditions. Our human relationships are the actual conditions in which the ideal life of God is to be exhibited. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#96. Lust indulged became habit, and habit unresisted became necessity. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by David Denby
#97. The director, Antoine Fuqua, relies on small details, which anchor the vigilante-as-saint myth in at least a minimal degree of reality. #Quote by David Denby
Saint quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#98. When they were in school, Peter used to say that everything you do is a self-portrait. It might look like 'Saint George and the Dragon' or 'The Rape of the Sabine Women,' but the angle you use, the lighting, the composition, the technique, they're all you. You are every color and brushstroke. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#99. We do not sin when we adore Christ in the Eucharist; we do sin when we do not adore Christ in the Eucharist. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#100. The main task for us all is that of a new evangelization aimed at helping younger generations to rediscover the true face of God, who is Love. To you young people, who are in search of a firm hope, I address the very words that Saint Paul wrote to the persecuted Christians in Rome at that time: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Rom 15:13). #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#101. No individual is isolated. He who is sad, saddens others. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#102. I cannot persuade myself that without love to others, and without, as far as rests with me, peaceableness toward all, I can be called a worthy servant of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by Paulo Coelho
#103. The ordinary man thinks that yielding to doubts and worries is a sign of sensibility, of spirituality. Acting thus, he remains distant from the true meaning of life, for his reduced reasoning turns him into the saint or monster he imagines he is, and before he realizes it, he is caught in the trap he has set himself. This type of person loves being told what he should do, but even more than that, he loves not following sound advice - simply in order to anger the generous soul who, at a certain moment, was concerned about him. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#104. To seek the greatest good is to live well, and to live well is nothing other than to love God with the whole heart, the whole soul, and the whole mind: It is therefore obvious that this love must be kept whole and uncorrupt, that is temperance; it should not be overcome with difficulties, that is fortitude, it must not be subservient to anything else, that is justice; it must discriminate among things so as not to be deceived by falsity or fraud, that is prudence. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#105. It's all a great mystery ... Look up at the sky and you'll see how everything changes #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#106. Nature, as we know her, is no saint ... She comes eating and drinking and sinning. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Saint quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#107. Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide wide sea!
And never a saint took pity on
My soul in agony. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Saint quotes by Henri Nouwen
#108. The world is waiting for new saints, ecstatic men and women who are so deeply rooted in the love of God that they are free to imagine a new international order. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Saint quotes by Jean Guitton
#109. When I read the documents relative to the Modernism, as it was defined by Saint Pius X, and when I compare them to the documents of the II Vatican Council, I cannot help being bewildered. For what was condemned as heresy in 1906 was proclaimed as what is and should be from now on the doctrine and method of the Church. In other words, the modernists of 1906 were, somewhat, precursors to me. My masters were part of them. My parents taught me Modernism. How could Saint Pius X reject those that now seem to be my precursors? #Quote by Jean Guitton
Saint quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#110. I like to watch the way a model moves in my clothes, the way she gives them life, or if they are wrong, stillborn, the way her life rejects them. #Quote by Yves Saint-Laurent
Saint quotes by Deepak Chopra
#111. At the level of second attention, however, this cycle is irrelevant. One doesn't need to repeal the law of karma at all. Despite all the activity on the surface of life, a speck of awareness inside is not touched. The instant they wake up in the morning, a saint and a sinner are in the same place. They both feel themselves to be alive and aware. This place stands outside reward and punishment. It knows no duality; therefore in stage four your challenge is to find this place, hold on to it, and live there. When you have accomplished this task, duality is gone. You are free from all bondage of good or bad actions. In Christian terms, your soul is redeemed and returned to innocence. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Saint quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#112. Saint Paul asks his disciple Timothy to "aim at faith" (2 Tim 2:22) with the same constancy as when he was a boy (cf. 2 Tim 3:15). This invitation is directed to each of us, that none of us grow lazy in the faith. It is the lifelong companion that makes it possible to perceive, ever anew, the marvels that God works for us. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#113. When you want to build a ship, then do not drum the men together in order to procure wood, to give instructions or to distribute the work, but teach them longing for the wide endless sea. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Shane Claiborne
#114. Sometimes people call folks here at the Simple Way saints. Usually they either want to applaud our lives and live vicariously through us, or they want to write us off as superhuman and create a safe distance. One of my favorite quotes, written on my wall here in bold black marker, is from Dorothy Day: Don't call us saints; we don't want to be dismissed that easily #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#115. If you want to build a flotilla of ships you don't sit around and talk about carpentry. You set the saws ablaze with visions of exploring distant shores. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by William Barclay
#116. A saint is someone whose life makes it easier to believe in God. #Quote by William Barclay
Saint quotes by Louis Claude De Saint-Martin
#117. I have desired to do good, but I have not desired to make noise, because I have felt that noise did no good and that good made no noise. #Quote by Louis Claude De Saint-Martin
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#118. For after all, why do we go on fighting? If we die for democracy then we must be one of the democracies. Let the rest fight with us, if that is the case. But the most powerful of them, the only one that could save us, chooses to bide its time. Very good. That is its right. But by so doing, that democracy signifies that we are fighting for ourselves alone. And we go on fighting despite the assurance that we have lost the war. Why, then, do we go on dying? Out of despair? But there is no despair. You know nothing about defeat if you think there is room in it for despair.

There is a verity that is higher than the pronouncements of the intelligence. There is a thing which pierces and governs us and which cannot be grasped by the intelligence. A tree has no language. We are a tree. There are truths which are evident, though not to be put into words. I do not die in order to obstruct the path of the invasion, for there is no shelter upon which I can fall back with those I love. I do not die to preserve my honor, since I deny that my honor is at stake, and I challenge the jurisdiction of my judge. Nor do I die out of desperation. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Leonard Ravenhill

Saint quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#122. I tried to show that fashion is an art. For that, I followed the counsel of my master Christian Dior and the imperishable lesson of Mademoiselle Chanel. I created for my era and I tried to foresee what tomorrow would be. #Quote by Yves Saint-Laurent
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery

Saint quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#124. The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#125. Chastity, or cleanness of heart, holds a glorious and distinguished place among the virtues, because she, alone, enables man to see God; hence Truth itself said, 'Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God.' #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#126. That one woman is both mother and virgin, not in spirit only but even in body. In spirit she is mother, not of our head, who is our Savior himself-of whom all, even she herself, are rightly called children of the bridegroom-but plainly she is the mother of us who are his members, because by love she has cooperated so that the faithful, who are the members of that head, might be born in the Church. In body, indeed, she is the Mother of that very head. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Saint Augustine

Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#132. I don't understand these people anymore, that travel the commuter-trains to their dormitory towns. These people that call themselves human, but, by a pressure they do not feel, are forced to do their work like ants. With what do they fill their time when they are free of work on their silly little Sundays? I am very fortunate in my profession. I feel like a farmer, with the airstrips as my fields. Those that have once tasted this kind of fare will not forget it ever. Not so, my friends? #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Catherine Zeta-Jones

Saint quotes by Yves Saint-Laurent
#136. I pass for a hypersensitive, reclusive neurotic, which I may well be, but I hope the year won't come when my anxieties and fatigue will destroy my love of this life, of all the things that inspire me
a line of music, a face in a Vermeer portrait, a character in an opera, or a model born in Harlem. #Quote by Yves Saint-Laurent
Saint quotes by Edward Bloor
#137. Life is complicated. You don't only have two simple choices: drunk or teetotaler; saint or sinner. It's more complicated than that. #Quote by Edward Bloor
Saint quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#138. Humanity is so constituted that the basest criminal represents you and me, as well as the most glorious saint that walks on high. We are reflected in all other men; all other men are embodied in us. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Saint quotes by Oswald Chambers
#139. Can a sinner be turned into a saint? Can a twisted life be made right? There is only one appropriate answer - "O Lord God, You know" (37:3). Never forge ahead with your religious common sense and say, "Oh, yes, with just a little more Bible reading, devotional time, and prayer, I see how it can be done. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Saint quotes by L.J. Shen

Saint quotes by Peter Saint James
#141. Talk about dance? Dance is not something to talk about. Dance is to dance. #Quote by Peter Saint James
Saint quotes by Marianne Williamson
#142. Should Michelangelo have always been calm, with so much talent and passion bursting through him? Or Georgia O'Keeffe, or Saint Teresa? We often find a common theme in biographies of talented people: In contrast to the brilliance of their art, their personalities were violent and their lives turbulent. The forces called violent and turbulent here are not in contrast to their brilliance; they were deeply felt, totally natural effects of a passionate life. How quickly we label the show of emotion as negative, particularly in women. How quick we are to label a woman's passion ugly, over the top, too much. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Saint quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#143. Her face, the face of a saint, a viking Madonna, shone through the faint motes that snowed across the candlelight, drew down its flush from the wine-colored lanterns in the pine. She was still as still. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald

Saint quotes by Avery Johnson
#146. In 1989 at Greater Saint Steven Full Gospel Church, I gave my life to Christ. That's pretty much where it all started for me. I was 23 years old at the time, right after my first year in the NBA. The pastor preached a message about being fully committed. That pretty much was me. I wasn't fully committed. I was kind of in and out all of the time. So I just wanted to make a commitment. #Quote by Avery Johnson
Saint quotes by Hugh Of Saint-Victor

Saint quotes by Erich Fromm
#148. The experience of humanism is that 'nothing human is alien to me'; that I carry within myself all of humanity; that nothing which exists in any human being does not exist in myself. I am the criminal and the saint. I am the child and the adult. I am the man who lived 100000 years ago and the man who will live 100000 years from now. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Saint quotes by Saint Basil

Saint quotes by Lois Lowry
#150. Kira closed her eyes, thought, and said them aloud. "Madder for red. Bedstraw for red too, just the roots. Tops of tansy for yellow, and greenwood for yellow too. And yarrow: yellow and gold. Dark hollyhocks, just the petals, for mauve ... "
"Broom sedge," she added, still remembering. "Goldy yellows and browns. And Saint Johnswort for browns too, but it'll stain my hands.
"And bronze fennel
leaves and flowers; use them fresh
and you can eat it too. Chamomile for tea and for green hues. #Quote by Lois Lowry

#151. One day," you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times!"
And a little later you added:

"Were you so sad, then?" I asked, "on the day of the forty-four sunsets?"
But the little prince made no reply. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery

Saint quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#153. [Saint Anthony] said, in his solitude, he sometimes encountered devils who looked like angels, and other times he found angels who looked like devils. When asked how he could tell the difference, the saint said that you can only tell which is which by the way you feel after the creature has left your company. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Saint quotes by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani
#154. Transportation from One Place to Another

Once whilst Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) was delivering one of his spiritually enlightening lectures, a person by the name of Abul Mu'aali was present in this gathering. He was seated directly in front of the great Saint. During the course of the lecture, Abul Mu'aali found that he needed to answer the call of nature (relieve himself). He tried to suppress this need because he found it disrespectful to leave the gathering of al-Ghawth al-A'zam (r.a) He controlled the urge to the best of his ability, but when he could not do so any longer, he decided to leave. As he was about to stand, he saw the great Ghawth (r.a) walking down the first stair of the pulpit (Mimbar) onto the second stair. As the Saint came to the second stair, Abul Mu'aali saw an image of the great Saint on the mimbar. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) came down to him and threw his shawl over him.

As this happened, Abul Mu'aali found that he was no longer in the gathering, but rather in a valley with beautiful lush vegetation. It was beautified even more by a stream, which flowed through it. He immediately answered the call of nature, performed Wudhu and then prayed two Rakaats Salaah. As he completed the Salaah, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) pulled the shawl off him. When Abul Mu'aali looked, he found to his amazement that he was still in the gathering of the great Saint (r.a) and he had not even missed one word of the lecture of the great Sa #Quote by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani

#155. The Saint is a medicine because he is an antidote. Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr; he is mistaken for a poison because he is an antidote. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Saint quotes by Camille Paglia
#156. The saints, many of them women, warred with themselves as well as God. The body has its own animal urges, just as there are attractions and repulsions in sex that modern liberalism cannot face. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Saint quotes by Saint Teresa Of Avila
#157. While the soul is in mortal sin, nothing can profit it; none of its good works merit an eternal reward, since they do not proceed from God as their first principle, and by Him alone is our virtue real virtue. #Quote by Saint Teresa Of Avila

Saint quotes by Saint Basil
#165. While we try to amass wealth, make piles of money, get hold of the land as our real property, overtop one another in riches, we have palpably cast off justice, and lost the common good. I should like to know how any man can be just, who is deliberately aiming to get out of someone else what he wants for himself. #Quote by Saint Basil
Saint quotes by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani
#166. A Thief Becomes an Abdaal (High-Ranking Saint)

Once a thief entered the house of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) with the intention of stealing. On entering the house, he became blind and could not see anything. He was unable to find his way out of the house and he eventually sat in one corner of the house. In the morning, he was caught and brought before Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) . When Al-Ghawth al-A'zam (r.a) saw him, he placed his blessed hands on the thief's eyes. The thief's eyesight was immediately restored. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) then said, "He came to steal materialistic (worldly wealth), I will bless him with such a treasure that it will remain with him forever." On saying these words, Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) placed his blessed sight on the thief once and elevated him to the status of Wilayat (Sainthood). It was also during this time that one of the appointed Abdaals had passed away. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (r.a) took the thief, now a Wali, and sent him out as the replacement for the Abdaal that had passed away. Subhan-Allah! #Quote by Hazrat Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Kadir Jilani

Saint quotes by Agatha Christie
#172. I pass over the spectacle of Poirot on a camel. He started by groans and lamentations and ended by shrieks, gesticulations and invocations to the Virgin Mary and every Saint in the calendar.

Saint quotes by Frederick Lenz
#175. Those whose primary concern is to destroy others are at the lowest level of development. Those who are only interested in their own satisfaction are farther along. Those who both do things for their own satisfaction and the satisfaction of others are even father along. Then there are saints who just constantly live for the welfare of others. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Saint quotes by Abu-Sa'id Abul-Khayr
#176. The perfect mystic is not an ecstatic devotee lost in contemplation of Oneness, nor a saintly recluse shunning all commerce with mankind, but "the true saint" goes in and out amongst the people and eats and sleeps with them and buys and sells in the market and marries and takes part in social intercourse, and never forgets God for a single moment. #Quote by Abu-Sa'id Abul-Khayr
Saint quotes by Michael Palmer
#177. His memory is perfectly clear

at all. He has seen things before

the indeterminate will).

Saint quotes by Megan Hart
#178. No, Dan."

"And you want me to go."

I looked into his eyes. "No. I don't."

He moved closer, encouraged, and put his hand on my shoulder. "Then what do you want, Elle?"

"I want you not to have to settle," I told him.

"Is that what you think I'm doing?"

"I know that's what you'll be doing. Because if you want more from me, you're not going to get it."

He said nothing for a long time. "When I readThe Little Prince, I thought you must be the rose. You with your four thorns, convincing me you're able to defend yourself. But now I know you hate roses. So you must be the fox instead.

So maybe what you really want is for me to tame you."

From a lot of men, that speech would have made me laugh, or roll my eyes. Then again, a lot of men wouldn't have

read Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic story ofThe Little Prince, or bothered to try and understand it.

I reached for his hand and held it between both of mine. "The fox tells the Little Prince he is a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. Just like the flower was like a hundred thousand other flowers."

Dan tucked a strand of hair behind my ear with the hand I wasn't holding. "But the fox asked the prince to tame him.

To make it so they'd need each other and be unique to each other. And he did it."

"And then the prince went away, Dan, and left the fox bereft." I looked down at my hands #Quote by Megan Hart
Saint quotes by Louis Claude De Saint-Martin
#179. Thus, from the first divine contract, and the pure region where truth abides, a continuous chain of mercies and light extends to humanity, through every epoch, and will be prolonged to the end of time, until it returns to the abode from which it descends, taking with it all the peaceful souls it shall have collected in its course; that we may know that it was Love which opened, directed and closed the circle of all things. #Quote by Louis Claude De Saint-Martin
Saint quotes by Saint Basil

Saint quotes by Saint Augustine
#191. If bodies please thee, praise God on occasion of them, and turn back thy love upon their Maker; lest in these things which please thee, thou displease. If souls please thee, be they loved in God: for they too are mutable, but in Him they are firmly established. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Saint quotes by Pope Francis
#192. One form of prayer moves us particularly to take up the task of evangelization and to seek the good of others: it is the prayer of intercession. Let us peer for a moment into the heart of Saint Paul, to see what his prayer was like. It was full of people: " ... I constantly pray with you in every one of my prayers for all of you ... because I hold you in my heart" (Phil 1:4, 7). Here we see that intercessory prayer does not divert us from true contemplation, since authentic contemplation always has a place for others. #Quote by Pope Francis
Saint quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#193. Nothing, in truth, can ever replace a lost companion. Old comrades cannot be manufactured. There is nothing that can equal the treasure of so many shared memories, so many bad times endured together, so many quarrels, reconciliations, heartfelt impulses. Friendships like that cannot be reconstructed. If you plant an oak, you will hope in vain to sit soon under its shade.
For such is life. We grow rich as we plant through the early years, but then come the years when time undoes our work and cuts down our trees. One by one our comrades deprive us of their shade, and within our mourning we always feel now the secret grief of growing old.
If I search among my memories for those whose taste is lasting, if I write the balance sheet of the moments that truly counted, I surely find those that no fortune could have bought me. You cannot buy the friendship of a companion bound to you forever by ordeals endured together. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Saint quotes by Eileen Myles
#194. Lucifer's name means light and the reason they threw him out of heaven and he became the biggest devil and not the biggest saint anymore was what he did with language. #Quote by Eileen Myles
Saint quotes by Naomi Alderman
#195. The castle's chapel has been remade. The glass-and-gold chandelier still floats in the center of the room, the wires holding it up too thin to be seen by candlelight. All these electric miracles. The windows depicting the angels praising Our Lady have remained intact, as have the panels to Saint Theresa and Saint Jerome. The others - and the enameled paintings in the cupola - have been replaced and reimagined according to the New Scripture. There is the Almighty speaking to the Matriarch Rebecca in the form of a dove. There is the Prophet Deborah proclaiming the Holy Word to the disbelieving people. There - although she protested - is Mother Eve, the symbolic tree behind her, receiving the message from the Heavens and extending her hand filled with lightning. In the center of the cupola is the hand with the all-seeing eye at its heart. That is the symbol of God, Who watches over each of us, and Whose mighty hand is outstretched to both the powerful and the enslaved. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Saint quotes by R.J. Blizzard
#196. A lifetime of eating at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil had produced a vision of saints and sinners. My heart ached to embark on a journey of liberation and taste of the Tree of Life where saint and sinner are one in love. Every saint has a story, and all sinners have glorious pages yet to be written. #Quote by R.J. Blizzard
Saint quotes by Mary Norris
#197. Benjamin Franklin, who was already in his eighties when he befriended Webster, and who advocated spelling reform, had encouraged the younger man to adopt his ideas. Franklin proposed that we lose c, w, y, and j; modify a and u to represent their different sounds; and adopt a new form of s for sh and a variation on y for ng as well as tweak the h of th to distinguish the sounds of "thy" and "thigh," "swath" and "swathe." If Franklin had had his way, he would have been the Saint Cyril of America - Cyril "perfected" the Greek alphabet for the Russian language; hence the Cyrillic alphabet - and American English would look like Turkish. #Quote by Mary Norris
Saint quotes by John Key

Saint quotes by The Invisible Committee
#200. The drone that even according to the police indeed did fly over Seine-Saint-Denis last July 14th is a picture of the future in much more straightforward colors than all the hazy images we get from the humanists. That they took the time to clarify that it was not armed shows pretty clearly the kind of road we're headed down. #Quote by The Invisible Committee
