Thornton Wilder's Angels

Thornton Wilder, who wrote the beautiful play, "Our Town" wrote this:

Without your wounds where
would your power be? The
very angels themselves
cannot persuade the
wretched and blundering
children on Earth as can one
human being broken in the
wheels of living. In love’s
service, only the wounded
can serve.
