Luciano De Crescenzo, quoted in Wisdom for the Soul : Five Millennia of Prescriptions for Spiritual Healing (2006) by Larry Chang, p. 127
Anger and tenderness: my selves. And now I can believe they breathe in me as angels, not polarities.
Perhaps heaven may not be so far away as we fancy; and if our eyes were not holden, we should see angels ascending and descending, and blessed spirits thronging all about us.arthur kenney
Language steps in where the angels of experience fear to tread.david wood
We shall find peace. We shall hear the angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.Anton Chekhov
Man is his own star, and the soul that can Render an honest and a perfect man Commands all light, all influence, all fate. Nothing to him falls early, or too late. Our acts our angels are, or good or ill, Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.
He whose intellect overcomes his desire is higher than the angels; he whose desire overcomes his intellect is less than an animal.jalal al-din muhammad rumi
Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us.
Of all the marvelous works of God, perhaps there is nothing that angels behold with such astonishment as a proud man.Charles Caleb Colton
They are rightly named, for their faces are angelic; and such should be the co-heirs of the angels in heaven.
The Savior who wants to turn men into angels is as much a hater of human nature as the totalitarian despot who wants to turn them into puppets.
Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
And yet, as angels in some brighter dreams Call to the soul when man doth sleep, So some strange thoughts transcend our wonted themes, And into glory peep.Henry Vaughan
God not only sends special angels into our lives, but sometimes He even sends them back again if we forget to take notes the first time!Eileen Elias Freeman
How do the angels get to sleep when the devil leaves the porch light on?
In old days there were angels who came and took men by the hand and led them away from the city of destruction. We see no white-winged angels now. But yet men are led away from threatening destruction: a hand is put into theirs, which leads them forth gently towards a calm and bright land, so that they look no more backward; and the hand may be a little child's.
There was an awful rainbow once in heaven: We know her woof, her texture; she is given In the dull catalogue of common things. Philosophy will clip an Angel’s wings, Conquer all mysteries by rule and line, Empty the haunted air, and gnomed mine Unweave a rainbow, as it erewhile made The tender-person’d Lamia melt into a shade.john keats
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
Surely the recitation of the Qur’an is an atonement for the sins, a covering (protection) from the Hell Fire, and a safety from the punishment. Mercy will descend upon the reciter, the angels will seek forgiveness for him, Heaven will long for that person, and his Master (Allah) will be pleased with him.
