John Milton

  • Though we take from a covetous man all his treasure, he has yet one jewel left; you cannot bereave him of his covetousness.

  • Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.

  • A good book is the precious life - blood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.

  • A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit.

  • Accuse not nature, she hath done her part; do thou but thine!

  • So many laws argue so many sins.

  • Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

  • The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.

  • Who overcomes by force, hath overcome but half his foe.

  • Luck is the residue of design.

  • Where no hope is left, is left no fear.

  • So dear I love him, that with him all deaths I could endure, without him live no life.

  • True it is that covetousness is rich, modesty starves.

  • For neither man nor angel can discern hypocrisy, the only evil that walks invisible.

  • Knowledge cannot defile, nor consequently the books, if the will and conscience be not defiled.

  • Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason itself.

  • He that studieth revenge keepeth his own wounds green, which otherwise would hear and do well.

  • For never can true reconcilement grow, Where wounds of deadly hare have pierced so deep.

  • Most men admire virtue, who follow not her lore.

  • Boast not of what thou wouldn't have done, but do.

  • Give me the liberty to know, to think, to believe, and to utter freely according to conscience, above all other liberties.

  • None can love freedom heartily, but good men - the rest love not freedom, but licence.

  • Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.

  • They also serve who only stand and wait.

  • No man who knows aught, can be so stupid to deny that all men naturally were born free.

  • The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.

  • Wickedness is weakness.

  • Eternity: a moment standing still for ever.

  • To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable.

  • Confidence imparts a wonderful inspiration to its possessor.

  • Love - quarrels oft in pleasing concord end.

  • He who reigns withing himself and rules his passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.

  • Reason is also choice.

  • Truth never comes into the world but like a bastard, to the ignominy of him that brought her birth.

  • The city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.
