“Farewel happy Fields Where Joy for ever dwells: Hail horrours, hailInfernal world, and thou profoundest HellReceive thy new Possessor:  One who brings A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time. The mind is its own place, and in it self Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n. What matter where, if I be still the same, And what I should be, all but less then heWhom Thunder hath made greater? Here at leastWe shall be free; th' Almighty hath not built Here for his envy, will not drive us hence: Here we may reign secure, and in my choyceTo reign is worth ambition though in Hell: Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav'n.” ― John Milton, Paradise Lost
