John Milton
Quotations



"How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth, stolen on his wing my three-and-twentieth year!"
 
"Not to know me argues yourselves unknown"
 
"He who reins within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than a king"
 
"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven."
 
"For I thought it base, to be traveling at my ease for culture when my countrymen at home were fighting for liberty."
 
"I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue."
