Will the real Milton now stand up?

“With innumerable force of spirits armed
that durst dislike his reign
and me preferring
his utmost power
with adverse power opposed
in dubious battle
on the planes of heaven
and shook his throne
what though the field is lost?
all is not lost:
the unconquerable will, study of revenge,
immortal hate, and courage
never to submit or yield.
for what else is there than to not be overcome?”

Ladies and gentleman, a round of applause please. Satan? Take a bow. That’s pretty much the same advice that Crooks gave, only more, well, Satanic.
