ANGELS

Angels
Illustration by Dan Beard from first edition of
FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR

They are always on deck when there is a miracle to the fore -- so as to get up in the picture, perhaps. Angels are as fond of that as a fire company; look at the old masters.
- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

I have been on the verge of being an angel all my life, but it's never happened yet.
- Mark Twain's Autobiography
