• Make account that thou hast done nothing, and then thou hast done all. For if, being sinners, when we account ourselves to be what we are, we become righteous, as indeed the Publican did; how much more, when being righteous we account ourselves to be sinners.

    Saint John Chrysostom, Sir George Prevost (1843). “The homilies of S. John Chrysostom ... on the gospel of St. Matthew”, p.37
