“What is a saint? A saint is someone who has achieved a remote human possibility. It is impossible to say what that possibility it. I think it has something to do with the energy of love. Contact with this energy results in the exercise of a kind of balance in the chaos of existence. A saint does not dissolve the chaos; if he did the world would have changed long ago. I do not thing that a saint dissolves the chaos even for himself, for there is something arrogant and warlike in the notion of a man setting the universe in order. It is a kind of balance that is his glory… He can love the shapes of human beings, the fine and twisted chaos of the heart. It is good to have among us such men, such balancing monsters of love.”

– Leonard Cohen, Beautiful Losers
