Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly

Thomas Heatherwick

Christmas card sent by Thomas Heatherwick to Wilfred and Jeannette Cass, 2010.  On display at the Cass Sculpture Foundation.

The source quote (originally ‘Angels can fly because they can take themselves lightly’) comes from a chapter entitled ‘The Eternal Revolution’ in G.K. Chesterton’s book Orthodoxy.
