St. Silouan the Athonite: "Understand two thoughts, and fear them"

"Understand two thoughts, and fear them.  One says, 'You are a saint,' the other, 'You won't be saved.'  Both of these thoughts are from the enemy, and there is no truth in them.  But think this way: I am a great sinner, but the Lord is merciful.  He loves people very much, and He will forgive my sins."
