I have been on the verge of being an angel all my life, but it's never happened yet.
If angels are entertained unaware, it is because they have tact.
Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.
Richard Purdy Wilbur
Until you can love, as the angels may, with the breath of heaven betwixt you,
Oh, never call it loving!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The world has angels all too few, and heaven is overflowing.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Beside each man who's born on earth a guardian angel takes his stand,
To guide him through life's mysteries.
Menander of Athens
The angels...regard our safety, undertake our defense, direct our ways,
And exercise a constant solicitude that no evil shall befall us.
Four angels to my bed,
Four angels round my head,
One to watch and one to pray
And two to bear my soul away.
There is a spiritual life that we share with the angels of heaven and with the divine spirits,
for like them we have been formed in the image and likeness of God.
Lawrence of Brindist
The earth is to the sun
What man is to the angels.
