Angels

Famous quotes containing the word angels:

    The angels all were 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,
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    when such bodies join
    There is no touching here, nor touching there,
    Nor straining joy, but whole is joined to whole;
    For the intercourse of angels is a light
    Where for its moment both seem lost, consumed.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    In Pride, in reas’ning Pride, our error lies;
    All quit their sphere, and rush into the skies.
    Pride still is aiming at the blest abodes,
    Men would be Angels, Angels would be Gods.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
