Roscoe Ellis shared a quote
no end but God Himself.
Theology and Sanity by Frank Sheed
“With what purpose did God make material beings and spiritual beings and men who are both? Each thing He made to serve Him, and to serve Him by being totally itself. But within this total ordering of everything towards God there is a division: for, under God, spiritual beings are an end in themselves, matter is not. The earth is made for man, whereas man is not similarly made for the angels but men and angels alike for God only: they can serve one another, but it is not the service of a means to an end, but reciprocal service of the children of one father: the immortal beings have no end but God Himself.”
Frank Sheed

It's enough for me to know that angels exist. I don't mess with magnificent theological speculation.
Theology and Sanity by Frank Sheed
“St. Thomas adopts a division of the nine choirs into three groups, according to their intellectual perfection and consequent nearness in being to God—Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones; Dominations, Virtues, Powers; Principalities, Archangels, Angels. Other writers suggest different arrangements; and there is a mass of magnificent theological speculation as to the difference of function between one choir and another. But the Church has defined nothing upon this matter.”

H.P. Lovecraft
“Life is a hideous thing, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Definitive H.P. Lovecraft

Pope Francis
“Frequently, we act as arbiters of grace rather than its facilitators. But the Church is not a tollhouse; it is the house of the Father, where there is a place for everyone, with all their problems.”
Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

Edgar Rice Burroughs
“Seizing a cudgel from the nearest priest, he laid about him like a veritable demon as he forged his rapid way toward the altar. The hand of La had paused at the first noise of interruption. When she saw who the author of it was she went white. She had never been able to fathom the secret of the strange white man's escape from the dungeon in which she had locked him.”
Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Collected Works of Edgar Rice Burroughs: 30 Books and Stories (Unexpurgated Edition)

Patrick J. Buchanan
“My views were closer to those of MacArthur in his “Duty, Honor, Country” address at West Point: “But always in our ears ring the ominous words of Plato … ‘Only the dead have seen the end of war.’ ”
Patrick J. Buchanan, The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose from Defeat to Create the New Majority

Dinesh D'Souza
“America is founded on the understanding that wealth can be created through innovation and enterprise. Through the system of technological capitalism, we can go from ten marbles to twenty marbles without taking anyone’s marbles.”
Dinesh D'Souza, America: Imagine a World Without Her
