358. oldal - Farewell, happy fields, Where joy for ever dwells! Hail, horrors! hail, Infernal World! and thou, profoundest Hell, Receive thy new possessor — one who brings A mind not to be changed by place or time. The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.
362. oldal - To speak ; whereat their doubled ranks they bend From wing to wing, and half enclose him round With all his peers : attention held them mute.
