quote of the day: 1/22/13
“The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.
What matter where, if I be still the same,
And what I should be, all but less than he
Whom under hath made greater? Here at least
We shall be free; th’ Almighty hath not build
Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
Here we may reign secure; and, in my choice,
To reign is worth ambition, though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven”.
-From Paradise Lost by John Milton
