I love reading saint quotes. A while back a friend on facebook posted this link and I love going through the quotes on the Saint Quotes site. However I found these quotes while cruising around the internet this morning while I was posting a few more rosary bracelets on my shop (I was looking for saint quotes that matched the medals on the rosaries I'd made). And I just had to share a few of my favorites with you:
"You cannot please both God and the world at the same time, They are utterly opposed to each other in their thoughts, their desires, and their actions."
-- St. John Vianney
"No earthly pleasures, no kingdoms of this world can benefit me in any way. I prefer death in Christ Jesus to power over the farthest limits of the earth. He who died in place of us is the one object of my quest. He who rose for our sakes is my one desire. Do not talk about Jesus Christ as long as you love this world."
--St Ignatius of Antioch
"Christ said, "I am the Truth"; he did not say "I am the custom.""
-- St. Toribio
"It is better to be the child of God than king of the whole world."
-- St. Aloysius Gonzaga
