What in me is dark,
  Illumine; what is low, raise and support;
    That to the height of this great argument
      I assert eternal Providence,
        And justify the ways of God to men.

Farewell, happy fields,
  Where joy forever dwells; hail horrors!

  Can either sex assume, or both.

Th' imperial ensign, which, full high advanc'd,
  Shone like a meteor, streaming to the wind.
    With gems and golden lustre rich emblazed,
      Seraphic arms and trophies.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 536) [War]

The imperial ensign; which, full high advanced,
  Shone like a meteor streaming to the wind.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 536) [Flags]

Sonorous metal blowing martial sounds,
  At which the universal host up sent
    A shout that tore hell's concave, and beyond

A dungeon horrible, on all sides round,
  As one great furnace, flamed; yet from those flames
    No light, but rather darkness visible
      Serv'd only to discover sights of woe,
        Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace
          And rest can never dwell, hope never comes
            That comes to all; but torture without end.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 61) [Hell]

Thrice he assay'd, and, thrice in spite of scorn,
  Tears, such as angels weep, burst forth.

  And rest can never dwell, hope never comes,
    That comes to all.

  Mammon, the least erected Spirit that fell
    From Heaven: for even in Heaven his looks and thoughts
      Were always downward bent, admiring more
        The riches of Heaven's pavement, trodden gold,
          Than aught divine or holy else enjoyed
            In vision beatific.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 678) [Mammon]
