St. Peter Julian Eymard
The greatest saints are truly persuaded that they are only great sinners, and they say it as they think it. Some look upon this expression as exaggerated. They cannot believe it, they say. And yet the saints are really convinced that they are the greatest sinner before God, because they have true humility and patience, which are the means of knowing one's misery in its very depths.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
