Angels

We are each of us angels with only one wing, to fly we need only embrace each other.

Unknown Source

The Angels were all singing out of tune, and hoarse with having little else to do, excepting to wind up the sun and moon or curb a runaway young star or two.

Lord Byron (1788-1824) British poet.

Were we as eloquent as angels we still would please people much more by listening rather than talking.

Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832) British clergyman, sportsman and author.

Make sure to send a lazy man the angel of death.

Jewish proverb

The angels are so enamoured of the language that is spoken in heaven, that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who understand it or not.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.

An angel is a spiritual creature created by God without a body for the service of Christendom and the church.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) German priest and scholar.

Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth unseen, both when we sleep and when we awake.

John Milton (1608-1674) English poet.

It is not known precisely where angels dwell -- whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode.

Voltaire (1694-1778) French writer and historian.

It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God only.

William Blake (1757-1827) British poet and painter.

If an angel were ever to tell us anything of his philosophy I believe many propositions would sound like 2 times 2 equals 13.

Georg C. Lichtenberg (1742-1799) German scientist, satirist and anglophile.
