I’ve always struggled with the belief in angels. And I’m the type of person who wants to believe in spiritual entities very much. Angels just seem a little…made-up or from our childhood.
But I won’t be surprised, in the end, if we find out that we each have a posse of angels, looking out for us at every turn. I want to believe, I want to believe…
If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels.
- Tennessee Williams
Every angel is terrifying.
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies
[Saint Anthony] said, in his solitude, he sometimes encountered devils who looked like angels, and other times he found angels who looked like devils. When asked how he could tell the difference, the saint said that you can only tell which is which by the way you feel after the creature has left your company.
- Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
The reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly.
- G.K. Chesterton
Angels have no philosophy but love.
- Terri Guillemets
Every man contemplates an angel in his future self.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Make yourself familiar with the angels and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you.
- St. Francis De Sales
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
Angels around us, angels beside us, angels within us.
Angels are watching over you when times are good or stressed.
Their wings wrap gently around you,
Whispering you are loved and blessed.
