Stood up, the strongest and the fiercest spirit
  That fought in heaven, now fiercer by despair.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 44) [Despair]

Rather than be less
  Car'd not to be at all.

Their rising all at once was as the sound
  Of thunder heard remote.

Ride the air
  In whirlwind.

Others more mild,
  Retreated in a silent valley, sing
    With notes angelical to many a harp
      Their own heroic deeds and hapless fall
        By doom of battle.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 546) [War]

In discourse more sweet,
  (For Eloquence the Sound, Song charmes the sense,)
    Others apart sat on a hill retir'd,
      In thoughts more elevate, and reasoned high
        Of Providence, Foreknowledge, Will and Fate,
          Fixed fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute;
            And found no end, in wand'ring mazes lost.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 555)

Fixed, fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute.

  With stubborn patience as with triple steel.

Black it stood as night,
  Fierce as ten furies, terrible as hell,
    And shook a dreadful dart; what seem'd his head
      The likeness of a kingly crown had on.
        Satan was now at hand.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 670) [Devil : War]

Whence and what are thou, execrable shape?
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 681)

Back to thy punishment,
  False fugitive, and to thy speed add wings,
    Least with a whip of Scorpions I pursue
      Thy lingring, or with one stroke of this Dart
        Strange horror seise thee, and pangs unfelt before.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 699)

So spake the grisly Terror.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 704) [Death]

Incens'd with indignation Satan stood
  Unterrified, and like a comet burn'd,
    That fires the length of Ophiucus huge
      In th' artic sky, and from his horrid hair
        Shakes pestilence and war.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. II, l. 707) [Devil]

That in our proper motion we ascend
  Up to our native seat; descent and fall
    To give us is adverse.

Before mine eyes in opposition sits
  Grim Death, my son and foe.
