Number of Quotes: 3

Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise
(That last infirmity of noble mind)
To scorn delights, and live laborious days.

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.

Paradise Lost

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