- Man was created a little lower than the angels, and has been getting lower ever since.
- The Angels were all 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.
- A pillow for thee will I bring,
Stuffed with down of angel's wing.
- I feel that there is an angel inside me whom I am constantly shocking.
- Angels descending, bring from above,
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

For such the angels go —
Rank after Rank, with even feet —
And uniforms of Snow.

Help finding quote (sharing human experience vs. angels pleading)
I'm trying to find a quote (which could be added to the page) -- it goes something like this:
"More convincing than the pleading of a thousand angels, is the sharing of the personal experience of one human being who has been broken by life, and then renewed."
I'm freely paraphrasing. That's the gist of it. I've seen it in several contexts during my life; but I can't find the exact quote. Does it ring a bell for anyone?
