2519
    In discourse more sweet;
For eloquence the soul, song charms the sense.
Others apart sat on a hill retir’d,
In thoughts more elevate, and reason’d high
Of providence, foreknowledge, will, and fate,
Fix’d fate, free-will, foreknowledge absolute;
And found no end, in wand’ring mazes lost.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 555.
2520
    Vain wisdom all and false philosophy.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 565.
2521
    Arm th’ obdur’d breast
With stubborn patience as with triple steel.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 568.
2522
    A gulf profound as that Serbonian bog
Betwixt Damiata and Mount Casius old,
Where armies whole have sunk: the parching air
Burns frore, and cold performs th’ effect of fire.
Thither by harpy-footed Furies hal’d,
At certain revolutions all the damn’d
Are brought, and feel by turns the bitter change
Of fierce extremes,—extremes by change more fierce;
From beds of raging fire to starve in ice
Their soft ethereal warmth, and there to pine
Immovable, infix’d, and frozen round,
Periods of time; thence hurried back to fire.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 592.
2523
    O’er many a frozen, many a fiery Alp,
Rocks, caves, lakes, fens, bogs, dens, and shades of death.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 620.
2524
    Gorgons and Hydras and Chimæras dire.
          Paradise Lost. Book ii. Line 628.
2525
    The other shape,
If shape it might be call’d that shape had none
Distinguishable in member, joint, or limb;
Or substance might be call’d that shadow seem’d,
For each seem’d either,—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. Book ii. Line 666.
