Malakim
There be spirits that are created for vengeance, which in their fury lay on sore strokes; in the time of destruction they pour out their force, and appease the wrath of him that made them.
Fire, and hail, and famine, and death, all these were created for vengeance;
Teeth of wild beasts, and scorpions, and the sword, punishing the wicked to destruction.
They shall rejoice in his commandment, and they shall be ready upon earth, when need is; and when their time is come, they shall not transgress his word.

Sirach 39:28-31

The Symphony

Everything on this planet has something to do with music. Music functions in the realm of sculptured air.
- Frank Zappa, Oui magazine, April 1979


God's Absence

Prayer must never be answered: if it is, it ceases to be prayer and becomes correspondence.
- Oscar Wilde, quoted by Alvin Redman in The Epigrams of Oscar Wilde


Low-Contrast or Backwards In Nomine

If you will take the trouble to consult your dictionary, you will find that demons may be either good or bad, like any other class of beings. Originally all demons were good, yet of late years people have come to consider all demons evil. I do not know why.
- L. Frank Baum, The Master Key


Balseraphs

The enemy is subtle, how be it we're deceived?
When the truth's in our hearts and we still don't believe?
- Bob Dylan, Precious Angel
