Line(s) of the Day #JohnMilton


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

Taken from the poetic masterpiece ‘Paradise Lost’, by English poet and politician John Milton (1608 – 1674).

  1. Egad! We were just talking about Milton’s “Paradise Lost” this evening – over a chicken pasta dinner that kinda sucked. I said I studied Milton in 1967 and didn’t understand a f**ing word, except for the final lines re Adam and Eve:

    They hand in hand with wandring steps and slow,
    Through Eden took thir solitarie way.

    I have lived my life with those lines in my head… Thanks for the Lines if the Day… You’ve made me excited and want to live again!!! For yet another adventure!
