Saint George, that swindg'd the dragon, and e’er since
Sits on his horse back at mine hostess’ door.

King of England John

The struggle against demagoguery scarcely fits the St George-against-the-dragon myth. Our democratic St George goes out rather reluctantly with armor awry. The struggle is confused; our knight wins by no clean thrust of lance or sword, but the dragon somehow poops out, and decent democracy is victor.

Norman Thomas

'Vote!' [Saint] George rolled his eyes. 'This is an assassination, not a debating society.' - c. 7

Tom Holt

A saint a real saint never does anything, a martyr does something but a really good saint does nothing, and so I wanted to have Four Saints who did nothing and I wrote the Four Saints In Three Acts and they did nothing and that was everything.
Generally speaking anybody is more interesting doing nothing than doing something.

Gertrude Stein

A saint is one to be for two when three and you make five and two and cover.
A at most.
Saint saint a saint.
