„Preventing angels met it half the way,
And sent us back to praise, who came to pray.“

Britannia Rediviva (1688), line 1.
Kontext: Our vows are heard betimes! and Heaven takes care
To grant, before we can conclude the prayer:
Preventing angels met it half the way,
And sent us back to praise, who came to pray.

„When God has sent his angel to me, then I know of a surety. … When God sends his angel to the soul it becomes the one who knows for sure.“

—  Meister Eckhart German theologian 1260 - 1328

Sermon 9, as translated in The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church (1999) by Hughes Oliphant Old, Ch. 9: The German Mystics, p. 448
Kontext: When God has sent his angel to me, then I know of a surety.... When God sends his angel to the soul it becomes the one who knows for sure. Not for nothing did God give the keys into St. Peter's keeping, for Peter stands for knowledge, and knowledge is the key that unlocks the door, presses forward and breaks in, to discover God as he is.

„O lyric Love, half angel and half bird
And all a wonder and a wild desire“

—  Robert Browning, The Ring and the Book

Book I : The Ring and the Book <!-- line 1391 -->.
The Ring and the Book (1868-69)
Kontext: O lyric Love, half angel and half bird
And all a wonder and a wild desire, —
Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun,
Took sanctuary within the holier blue,
And sang a kindred soul out to his face, —
Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart—
When the first summons from the darkling earth
Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue,
And bared them of the glory — to drop down,
To toil for man, to suffer or to die, —
This is the same voice: can thy soul know change?
Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!
