angels

The angels may have wider spheres of action, may have nobler forms of duty; but right with them and with us is one and the same thing. - Edwin Hubbell Chapin
The reason angels can fly is that they take themselves so lightly. - G. K. Chesterton, fully Gilbert Keith Chesterton
As to modesty and decency, if we are simians we have done well, considering: but if we are something else - fallen angels - we have indeed fallen far. - Clarence Shepard Day, Jr.
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 Eliot, pen name of Mary Ann or Marian Evans
Every good act is charity. Your smiling in your brother's face, is charity; an exhortation of your fellow-man to virtuous deeds, is equal to alms-giving; your putting a wanderer in the right road, is charity; your removing stones, and thorns, and other obstructions from the road, is charity; your giving water to the thirsty, is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter, is the good he does in this world to his fellow-man. When he dies, people will say, "What property has he left behind him?" but the angels will ask, "What good deeds has he sent before him." -
Reputation is what men and women think of us. Character is what God and angels know of us. - Thomas Paine
It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. - Saint Augustine, aka Augustine of Hippo, St. Austin, Bishop of Hippo
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. -
Women are only told that they resemble angels when they are young and beautiful; consequently, it is their persons, not their virtues, that procure them homage. - Phoebe Cary
Peace is the first thing the angels sang. Peace is the mark of the sons of God. Peace is the nurse of love. Peace is the mother of unity. Peace is the rest of blessed souls. Peace is the dwelling place of eternity. - Pope Leo I, aka Pope Leo The Great, Pope Saint Leo I
