"Wingless angels," he adds, tuning back to me. "And don't ask them to sing—it'll just break their heart. it's very distressing, as I'm sure you can imagine. They get all maudlin and homesick, which isn't a pretty sight. Mind you, they're never a pretty sight, are they?" . . . "They sing like angels, but they can't fly, Chose the wong side when the war raged in heaven and now they're living down below with the rest of the sinners. Lusifer's boys. . . .  See, sometimes they walk among us, but they can't ever have what we have. A shot at getting back upstairs." — Father Sully, "Wingless Angels", Tapping the Dream Tree
