Famous quotes containing the word milton:

    So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted high
    Through the dear might of him that walk’d the waves,
    Where other groves and other streams along
    With nectar pure his oozy locks he laves
    And hears the unexpressive nuptial song
    In the bless’d kingdoms meek of joy and love.
    There entertain him all the saints above
    In solemn troops and sweet societies,
    That sing, and singing in their glory move,
    And wipe the tears for ever from his eyes.
    —John Milton (1608–1674)

    And when night
    Darkens the streets, then wander forth the sons
    Of Belial, flown with insolence and wine.
    —John Milton (1608–1674)

    Be it so, for I submit; his doom is fair,
    That dust I am and shall to dust return.
    O welcome hour whenever! Why delays
    His hand to execute what his decree
    Fixed on this day? Why do I overlive?
    Why am I mocked with death, and lengthened out
    To deathless pain? How gladly would I meet
    Mortality, my sentence, and be earth
    Insensible! how glad would lay me down
    As in my mother’s lap!
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
