Famous quotes containing the word saints:

    The Saints come,
    as human as a mouth,
    with a bag of God in their backs,
    like a hunchback,
    they come,
    they come marching in.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    All saints revile her, and all sober men
    Ruled by the God Apollo’s golden mean—
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalms 149:5-9.
