Top 10 Best Paradise Lost Quotes

#10

 

O fairest of creation! last and best
Of all God's works! creature in whom excelled
Whatever can to sight or thought be formed,
Holy, divine, good, amiable, or sweet!
How art thou lost, how on a sudden lost,
Defaced, deflowered, and now to Death devote?

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 9

Let none admire
That riches grow in Hell; that soil may best
Deserve they precious bane.

So farewell hope, and with hope farewell fear,
Farewell remorse; all good to me is lost.
Evil, be thou my good.

With thee conversing I forget all time,
All seasons, and their change; all please alike.
Sweet is the breath of morn, her rising sweet,
With charm of earliest birds; pleasant the sun
When first on this delightful land he spreads
His orient beams on herb, tree, fruit, and flower,
Glist'ring with dew; fragrant the fertile earth
After soft showers; and sweet the coming on
Of grateful ev'ning mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train:
But neither breath of morn when she ascends
With charm of earliest birds, nor rising sun
On this delightful land, nor herb, fruit, flower,
Glist'ring with dew, nor fragrance after showers,
Nor grateful ev'ning mild, nor silent night
With this her solemn bird, nor walk by moon
Or glittering starlight, without thee is sweet.

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 4

 
#4
 

Accuse not Nature: she hath done her part;
Do thou but thine.

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 8

Long is the way
And hard, that out of Hell leads up to Light.

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 2

Revenge, at first though sweet,
Bitter ere long back on itself recoils.

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 9

 
#1
 

The mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heav'n of hell, a hell of heav'n.

--JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost, Book 1
