Rick Yancey said this quote

I prefer not to call them demons. It demeans their nature. But isn't that what they are?We should pity them more than fear them Alfred. They were angels once.Yea, but didn't you say they rebelled against God? They got what they deserved.Perhaps. He sighed. Yet do we not all hope and pray that we ourselves escape that we truly deserve? None have fallen as far or as irrevocably as the outcasts of heaven. Did you not find them beautiful. ...They have gazed upon the very face of God, the face they will see no more for all eternity-and so I pity them. Even as I envy them for having seen it.
