Supernatural

  • Angels are pure thoughts from God, winged with Truth and Love ...

  • How are we to account for the strange human craving for the pleasure of feeling afraid which is so much involved in our love of ghost stories?

  • The irrational haunts the metaphysical.

  • Oh sovereign angel, / Wide winged stranger above a forgetful earth, / Care for me, care for me. Keep me unaware of danger / And not regretful / And not forgetful of my innocent birth.

  • Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.

  • [On the metaphysical:] ... I knew in some marvelous way I had touched the hem of the unknown. And being me, I wanted to lift that hemline a little bit more.

  • I'm no angel, but I've spread my wings a bit.

  • Sorcerers never kill anybody. They make people kill themselves.

  • ... no one who has seen an angel ever mistakes it for a ghost. Angels are remarkable for their warmth and light, and all who see them speak in awe of their irridescent and refulgent light, of brilliant colors, or else of the unbearable whiteness of their being. You are flooded with laughter, happiness.

  • Angels come in all sizes and shapes and colors, visible and invisible to the physical eye. But always you are changed from having seen one.

  • ... you didn't get to pick your ghosts, your ghosts picked you.

    • Danielle Evans,
    • "Someone Ought to Tell Her There's Nowhere to Go," Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self ()
  • ... the world is not a place but the vastness of the soul. And the soul is nothing more than love, limitless, endless, all that moves us toward knowing what is true. I once thought love was supposed to be nothing but bliss. I now know it is also worry and grief, hope and trust. And believing in ghosts — that's believing that love never dies. If people we love die, then they are lost only to our ordinary senses. If we remember, we can find them anytime with our hundred secret senses.

  • My sister Kwan believes she has yin eyes. She sees those who have died and now dwell in the world of Yin, ghosts who leave the mists just to visit her kitchen on Balboa Street in San Francisco.

  • Does one ever see any ghost that is not oneself?

  • Nobody believes in ghosts, but everybody is afraid of them ...

  • Obviously, not everybody who dies becomes a ghost, otherwise those who are psychic would be aware of shouldering through deep crowds of assorted shades every time they moved.

  • Ghosts cannot be put on the witness stand, or have their fingerprints taken. They are completely proof against proof.

  • Imagine them as they were first conceived: / part musical instrument and part daisy ...

    • P.K. Page,
    • "Images of Angels," The Metal and the Flower ()
  • ... the supernatural, after all, is only something for which we haven't yet uncovered the natural laws ...

  • Ghost stories ... tell us about things that lie hidden within all of us, and which lurk outside all around us.

  • Where there are problems, there are angels hovering about just waiting for us to ask them to help us transform our suffering into blessings. I'm not being religious, I'm telling you the truth as I have experienced it. ... And I'm not being trendy either. I was talking to angels long before they got fashionable. ... So maybe you don't believe in angels, that's all right, they don't care. They're not like Tinkerbell, you know, they don't depend on your faith to exist. A lot of people didn't believe the earth was round either, but that didn't make it any flatter.

  • Even if a ghost is ripping a house to pieces, throwing tin pans all over, pouring water on pillows, making clocks chime at all hours, mortals will accept almost any 'natural explanation' offered, no matter how absurd, rather than the obvious supernatural one, for what is going on.

  • I was a twenty-five-year-old man when I became a vampire, and the year was seventeen ninety-one.
