Spurgeon said, "Holiness is not the way to Christ; Christ is the way to holiness."  "Better still, Christ is our holiness."

Jonathan Edwards believed that "every experience of God could be counterfeited except those with an insight into His holiness."

John Wesley’s definition of holiness “the loving God with all our heart and soul, and our neighbour as ourselves. It is love governing the heart and life, running through all our tempers, words, and actions.” 

Leonard Ravenhill "There’s a difference between changing your opinion, and changing your lifestyle."
 -"How can you pull down strongholds of Satan if you don’t even have the strength to turn off your TV?"
-"Is the world crucified to you tonight? Or does it fascinate you?" 
-"The question isn't were you challenged. The question is were you changed?"
-"Your doctrine can be as straight as a gun barrel—and just as empty!"

Here is the Bible on Holiness -

1 Peter 1:16 (NKJV) “because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

Hebrews 12:14  (NKJV) “14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:”

1 Peter 1:13–16 
"13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

Leviticus 19:2  “Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.' "

Isaiah 6:3  "And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;  The whole earth is full of His glory!”

1 Samuel 2:22 “No one is holy like the Lord, For there is none besides You,
                       Nor is there any rock like our God."
