There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Mafia.
The Sirens of Titan
As in my other works of fiction: All persons living and dead are purely coincidental, and should not be construed. No names have been changed in order to protect the innocent. Angels protect the innocent as a matter of Heavenly routine.

But men must know that in this theater of man's life it is reserved only for God and angels to be lookers on.
The Advancement of Learning
In heaven an angel is nobody in particular.
George Bernard Shaw
