The only difference between the Saint and the sinner is that every Saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
- Oscar Wilde
Dreams are a future that hasn't happened yet. Because it hasn't happened, it's easy to give it up. "Easy".
Giving up your past is not as easy. It's as easy as a sinner becoming a Saint.
Many people genuinely do not wish to be saints, and it is possible that some who achieve or aspire to sainthood have never had much temptation to be human beings.
- George Orwell
