Famous quotes containing the words angels and/or secret:
“My delight and thy delight
Walking, like two angels white,”
—Robert Bridges (18441930)
“How like a prodigal doth nature seem,
When thou, for all thy gold, so common art!
Thou teachest me to deem
More sacredly of every human heart,
Since each reflects in joy its scanty gleam
Of Heaven, and could some wondrous secret show,
Did we but pay the love we owe,
And with a childs undoubting wisdom look
On all these living pages of Gods book.”
—James Russell Lowell (18191891)
