Let none admire
  That riches grow in hell; that soil may best
    Deserve the precious bane.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 690) [Wealth]

As in an organ from one blast of wind
  To many a row of pipes the soundboard breathes.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 708) [Music]

Anon, out of the earth a fabric huge
  Rose, like an exhalation.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 710)
        [Architecture]

Nor did there want
  Cornice or frieze with bossy sculpture graven.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 715)
        [Architecture]

The hasty multitude
  Admiring enter'd, and the work some praise,
    And some the architect: his hand was known
      In heaven by many a tower'd structure high,
        Where scepter'd angels held their residence,
          And sat as princes.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 730)
        [Architecture : Heaven]

From morn
  To moon he fell, from noon to dewy eve,
    A summer's day; and with the setting sun
      Dropt from the zenith like a falling star.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 742) [Devil]

Whirlwinds of tempestuous fire.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 77) [Fire]

. . . Or fairy elves,
  Whose midnight revels by a forest side
    Or fountain, some belated peasant sees,
      Or dreams he sees, while overhead the Moon
        Sits arbitress, and nearer to the Earth
          Wheels her pale course; they, on their mirth and dance
            Intent, with jocund music charm his ear;
              At once with joy and fear his heart rebounds.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 781) [Fairies]

So he with difficulty and labor hard
  Mov'd on, with difficulty and labor be.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 1,021)
        [Difficulties]

Hanging in a golden chain
  This pendent world, in bigness as a star
    Of smallest magnitude close by the moon.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 1,051) [World]

Which, if not victory, is yet revenge.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 105) [Revenge]

He seemed
  For dignity compos'd and high exploit:
    But all was false and hollow.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 110)
        [Deceit : Falsity]

But all was false and hollow; though his tongue
  Dropt manna, and could make the worse appear
    The better reason, to perplex and dash
      Maturest counsels.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 112) [Reason]

Though his tongue
  Dropp'd manna, and could make the worse appear
    The better reason, to perplex and dash
      Maturest counsels.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 112) [Speech]

Thus repuls'd, our final hope
  Is flat despair.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 141) [Despair]

For who would lose,
  Though full of pain, this intellectual being,
    Those thoughts that wander through eternity,
      To perish rather, swallow'd up and lost
        In the wide womb of uncreated night,
          Devoid of sense and motion?
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 146)
        [Immortality]

His red right hand.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 174) [Hand]

Unrespited, unpitied, unreprieved.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 185)
        [Character : Punishment]

The never-ending flight
  Of future days.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 221) [Future]

Fate shall yield
  To fickle Chance, and Chaos judge the strife.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 232) [Chaos]

Our torments also may in length of time
  Become our elements.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 274)
        [Punishment]

. . . With grave
  Aspect he rose, and in his rising seem'd
    A pillar of state; deep on his front engraven
      Deliberation sat, and public care;
        And princely counsel in his face yet shone
          Majestic, though in ruin; sage he stood,
            With Atlantean shoulders, fit to bear
              The weight of mightiest monarchies; his look
                Drew audience and attention still as night
                  Or summer's noontide air.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 300) [Dignity]

Surer to prosper than prosperity could have assur'd us.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 39) [Prosperity]

The palpable obscure.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 406) [Obscurity]

Long is the way
  And hard, that out of hell leads up to light.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 432)
        [Hell : Reformation]
