A pillar'd shade
  High over-arch'd, and echoing walks between.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. IX, l. 1,016) [Trees]

So counsel'd he, and both together went
  Into the thickest wood; there soon they chose
    The fig-tree, not that kind for fruit renowned,
      But such as at this day to Indians known
        In Malabar or Decan spreads her arms,
          Branching so broad and long, that in the ground
            The bended twigs take rood, and daughters grow
              About the mother tree, a pillar'd shade
                High overarch'd, and echoing walks between.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. IX, l. 1,099) [Figs]

But what will not ambition and revenge
  Descend to? who aspires must down as low

Adam, well may we labour, still to dress

Direct
  The clasping ivy where to climb.

  In woman, than to study household good,
    And good works in her husband to promote.

Left that command
  Sole daughter of his voice.
      - Paradise Lost (bk. IX, l. 652) [Duty]

Her rash hand in evil hour

      - Paradise Lost (bk. IX, l. 780) [Sin]
