The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. ~George Elliot
The reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly. ~G.K. Chesterton, “Orthodoxy”
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.
Be an angel to someone else whenever you can, as a way of thanking God for the help your angel has given you. ~Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
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 alone. ~William Blake
Angels have no philosophy but love. ~Terri Guillemets
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
Pay attention to your dreams — God’s angels often speak directly to our hearts when we are asleep. ~Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994
The soul at its highest is found like God, but an angel gives a closer idea of Him. That is all an angel is: an idea of God. ~Meister Eckhart
Angels descending, bring from above,
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
~Fanny J. Crosby
