1608-1674, British Poet
What call thou solitude? Is not the earth with various living creatures, and the air replenished, and all these at thy command to come and play before thee?
John Milton – [Solitude]
What reinforcement we may gain from hope; If not, what resolution from despair.
John Milton – [Respectability]
What wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbear without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian.
John Milton – [Evil]
When complaints are freely heard, deeply considered and speedily reformed, then is the utmost bound of civil liberty attained that wise men look for.
John Milton – [Complaints and Complaining]
Where no hope is left, is left no fear.
John Milton – [Hope]
Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason itself.
John Milton – [Books and Reading]
With thee conversing I forget all time.
John Milton – [Conversation]
