"See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way. . . ." --Exodus 23:2

"To embody the transcendent is why we are here." --Sogyal Rinpoche The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

"Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly." --G. K. Chesterton

They lift our spirits and nurture our souls. They watch over us, protect us, and guide us. They are the messengers of heaven.

Now, The Quotable Angel gathers together hundreds of quotations on the subject of angels, from biblical times to the present. Here is a radiant treasury to delight the mind and spirit. The power of angels shines through Catholic prayers and African proverbs, Dante and Dickinson, Shakespeare and Shaw. Pilots, presidents, politicians, and more also illuminate the profound nature of angelic grace. Clustered into topics ranging from Guardian Angels and Angels of Mercy to Angels' Voices and Angels of the Natural World, these quotations are enchanting, provocative, and timeless.

Exquisitely designed with classic drawings and engravings, The Quotable Angel will console, exalt, and inspire us all.
