Paradise Lost: The Mind Is Its Own Place

Another line from Satan. As noted by Samir Chopra, these lines “become part of the defenses he erects to protect himself against the Fall and the loss of Heaven: the displacement is permanent, but so long as his spirit and his consciousness are as ever before, all is not lost.”

This can be perceived in different contexts, but really, considering that said character’s mind, though it is its own place, is as corrupt and malicious as anything can get, this will lead nowhere.

Another intriguing quote from the Arch-Antagonist:

Not in my view. Besides, the reigning in hell doesn’t really turn out very well, does it?
