"Guardian angels are perhaps the most popular kind, probably because we all know how fragile life can be. We desperately need protection from unexpected circumstances and unseen dangers. Just the thought of good angels hovering around us gives people a feeling of safety!" -- Gary Kinnaman

"These things I warmly wish for you: someone to love, some work to do, a bit o' sun, a bit o' cheer, and a guardian angel always near." -- Irish blessing Children often have imaginary playmates. I suspect that half of them are really their guardian angels." -- Eileen Elias Freeman "When I was a child I thought I saw an angel. It had wings and kind of looked like my sister. I opened the door so some light could come into the room, and it sort of faded away. My mother said it was probably my guardian angel." -- Denzel Washington

"We cannot pass our guardian angel's bounds, resigned or sullen; he will hear our sighs." -- Saint Augustine

"Angels are principally the guardians of our spirits. Their function is not to do our work for us, but to help us do it ourselves, by God's grace." -- Eileen Elias Freeman

"The angels as the guardians of men are set over men as instructors and monitors. This shows the relationship that is to exist between them. Man's attitude is to be one of obedience and subjection. He is to follow the lead of the angels, and consequently some reverence is already implied in the very relationship that exists between man and angel." -- Tertullian

"If you wish success in life, make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise counselor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian angel." -- Joseph Addision
