Holiness Quotations

I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.
John Keats

We are 100 percent responsible for the pursuit of holiness, but at the same time we are 100 percent dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us in that pursuit. The pursuit of holiness is not a pull-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps approach to the Christian life.
Jerry Bridges

Let your daughter have first of all the book of Psalms for holiness of heart, and be instructed in the Proverbs of Solomon for her godly life.
St. Jerome

Holiness is the strength of the soul. It comes by faith and through obedience to God's laws and ordinances. God then purifies the heart by faith, and the heart becomes purged from that which is profane and unworthy.
James E. Faust

To desire and expect nothing for oneself and to have profound sympathy for others is genuine holiness.
Ivan Turgenev
