John Milton. (1608–1674) (continued)
    Servant of God, well done; well hast thou fought
The better fight.
          Paradise Lost. Book vi. Line 29.
    Arms on armour clashing bray’d
Horrible discord, and the madding wheels
Of brazen chariots rag’d: dire was the noise
Of conflict.
          Paradise Lost. Book vi. Line 209.
    Spirits that live throughout,
Vital in every part, not as frail man,
In entrails, heart or head, liver or reins,
Cannot but by annihilating die.

    Far off his coming shone.
          Paradise Lost. Book vi. Line 768.
    More safe I sing with mortal voice, unchang’d
To hoarse or mute, though fall’n on evil days,
On evil days though fall’n, and evil tongues.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 24.
    Still govern thou my song,
Urania, and fit audience find, though few.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 30.
    Heaven open’d wide
Her ever during gates, harmonious sound,
On golden hinges moving.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 205.
    Hither, as to their fountain, other stars
Repairing, in their golden urns draw light.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 364.
    Now half appear’d
The tawny lion, pawing to get free
His hinder parts.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 463.
With sanctity of reason.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 507.
    A broad and ample road, whose dust is gold,
And pavement stars,—as stars to thee appear
Seen in the galaxy, that milky way
Which nightly as a circling zone thou seest
Powder’d with stars.
          Paradise Lost. Book vii. Line 577.
