“Words are truly the images of the soul,” Basil the Great once said, and no better description can be made of the writings of the saints. For centuries, wisdom and inspiration have poured forth from these holy people. Ranging from the inspirational to the philosophical, the sayings of saints and excerpts from their writings are now compiled into one volume.

The Quotable Saint is an extensive collection of excerpts from the lives, thoughts, writings, and sayings of the saints. More than 3,000 quotes cover a wide range of topics, including daily life, work, family, marriage, relationships, the afterlife, the soul, and more. The quotes are listed under more than 250 categories, such as God; Creation; Natural World; Humanity; Angels; Truth; Knowledge; Wisdom; Love; Spiritual Path; Evil; and Death and the Afterlife. The Quotable Saint is an excellent guide to the insights and observations of this group of extraordinary religious personalities.
