Saint Quotations

The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
Oscar Wilde

The difference between a saint and a hypocrite is that one lies for his religion, the other by it.
Minna Antrim

In the world, there are countless Sadhus, Mahatmas, Mahapurushas, Saints, Yogis, and Walis, though the number of genuine ones is very, very limited. I am neither a Mahatma nor a Mahapurush, neither a Sadhu nor a Saint, neither a Yogi nor a Wali. I am the ancient One. The Highest of the High!
Meher Baba

Everything about me is a contradiction, and so is everything about everybody else. We are made out of oppositions; we live between two poles. There's a philistine and an aesthete in all of us, and a murderer and a saint. You don't reconcile the poles. You just recognize them.
Orson Welles

You cannot make a sinner into a saint by killing him. He who does not live as a saint here will never live as a saint hereafter.
Charles Spurgeon
