Question: What Are Some Famous Quotes About Archangels?

Here are some famous quotes about the archangels who serve God and inspire human beings:

"Every man may reign secure in his petty tyranny, and spread terror and desolation around him, until the trump of the Archangel shall excite different emotions in his soul." -- James Otis

"His form had yet not lost/All her original brightness, nor appeared/Less than archangel ruined, and the excess/Of glory obscured." -- John Milton

"If there is a heaven, it's certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them." -- Pam Brown
