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
