Creative Quotations from . . .
John Milton
(1608-1674) born on
Dec 09
English poet, essayist. He was a master epic poetry; Wrote in four languages including "Paradise Lost," 1676, after losing his sight.
The childhood shows the man,
As morning shows the day. Be famous then
By wisdom; as thy empire must extend,
So let extend thy mind o'er all the world.

A mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heav'n of hell, a hell of heav'n.
The other shape,
If shape it might be called that shape had none.
The troublesome and modern bondage of rhyming.
What is strength without a double share of wisdom?
