Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism

Tennessee Williams
“If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels.”

Lang Leav
“It happens like this.

"One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else--closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel--one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them--even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering--the reason for their presence will become clear in due time."

Though here is a word of warning--you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn't to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

It's so dark right now, I can't see any light around me.
That's because the light is coming from you. You can't see it but everyone else can.”

Elizabeth Gilbert
“[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

Jim Morrison
“Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light? Or just another lost angel... City of Night? ”
Jim Morrison

Richelle Mead
“How come when mortals want things, their only option is to make a deal with Hell and sell their soul? Why can’t they make deals with God in exchange for good behavior?"

It was another of those rare moments when I’d surprised Carter. I waited for the glib answer I’d mentioned to Seth, something along the lines of goodness being its own reward. The angel considered for several seconds. "Humans make those deals all the time," he said finally. "They just don’t make them with God."

"Then who are they making them with?" I exclaimed.

"Themselves.”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Heat

Jeannette Walls
“Nobody's perfect. We're all just one step up from the beasts and one step down from the angels.”
Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

Courtney Allison Moulton
“He reached forward to cup my cheek, the touch surprising me. "Please understand that no matter what I am or what has happened in the past, I am yours. I am devoted to you above all else, including my own life."
I exhaled after holding my breath for what felt like forever. "That's pretty heavy, Will."
His expression was impassioned, and the backs of his fingers brushed the side of my neck.
"It is a burden I am glad to carry.”
Courtney Allison Moulton, Angelfire

William Blake
“I was walking among the fires of Hell, delighted with the enjoyments of Genius; which to Angels look like torment and insanity.”
William Blake

Thomas Jefferson
“When once we quit the basis of sensation, all is in the wind. To talk of immaterial existences is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, god, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no god, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise: but I believe I am supported in my creed of materialism by Locke, Tracy, and Stewart.

{Letter to John Adams, from Monticello, 15 August 1820}”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson

Nalini Singh
“Option 1: Attempt to back out.

Probable result: Death after painful torture.

Option 2: Do the job and hope.

Probable result: Death but probably no torture (good)”
Nalini Singh, Angels' Blood

Brenna Yovanoff
“The treachery of demons is nothing compared to the betrayal of an angel.”
Brenna Yovanoff, The Space Between

“And while Luce dreamed below of the most glorious wings unfurling-the likes of which she'd never seen before-two angels in the rafters shook hands.”
Lauren Kate, Fallen

Courtney Allison Moulton
“Ellie, you need to understand," he said softly. "I exist only to serve you and fight by your side. Whether that fighting is to preserve your life or to make sure you smile, that is what I am built to do. You're all I have, and I will watch over you forever.”
Courtney Allison Moulton, Angelfire

Nalini Singh
“For the first time in forever, he was stunned to silence. Not by her words, but by the tenderness in her hands, the worry in her eyes. He was an archangel. He’d been wounded far, far worse and shrugged it off. But then, there had been no woman with sun kissed by the sunset and eyes of storm gray to tear into him for daring to get himself hurt.”
Nalini Singh, Archangel's Consort

Courtney Allison Moulton
“He smiled. "we go inside."
"I'm going to get tetanus in there." I grumbled.
"Don't go rolling in piles of dirt and rusty nails and you'll be fine."
"You're an ass.”
Courtney Allison Moulton, Angelfire

Lisa Desrochers, Personal Demons

Ed Sheeran

Francesca Lia Block, Weetzie Bat

Sarah Dessen
“Why does she have wings?'
So she can fly.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Lisa Desrochers
“Sii la mia schiava d’amore,” I purr.
Her expression is guarded. “What did you say?”
An amused smile pulls at my lips. “I’ll never tell.” Somehow, I don’t think she’d agree to be my love slave anyway.”—Luc Cain (p. 148)”
Lisa Desrochers, Personal Demons

Courtney Allison Moulton
“Are you coming with us?"
He looked down at me, his eyes a cool mint green. He seemed to have calmed down since Cadan left.
"If you wish."
"I would feel better if you were close," I whispered. "Cadan freaked me out."
"Then of course," he said. "I'll follow you anywhere.”
Courtney Allison Moulton, Angelfire

Lisa Desrochers
“But his eyes say what he can’t. I see it, clear as day, even if she doesn’t. He’d give up his wings for her. All she’d have to do is ask.”
Lisa Desrochers, Personal Demons

“The hand on my hair moved to my back, and I realized someone was singing softly. The voice was familiar, and something about it made my chest ache. Well, that was to be expected. Angels' songs would be awfully poignant.
"'I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you...'" the voice crooned.
I frowned. Was that really an appropriate song for the Heavenly Host to be--”
Rachel Hawkins, Spell Bound

Ed Sheeran
“It's too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight
Straight down the line”
Ed Sheeran

Lauren Kate

"I'm sort of in between gigs right now," Daniel said.”
