Thought for the Day
no, let us rather choose
Arm'd with Hell flames and fury all at once
O're Heav'ns high Towrs to force resistless way,
Turning our Tortures into horrid Arms
Against the Torturer; when to meet the noise
Of his Almighty Engin he shall hear
Infernal Thunder, and for Lightning see
Black fire and horror shot with equal rage
Among his Angels; and his Throne it self
Mixt with Tartarean Sulphur, and strange fire,
His own invented Torments.
-- John Milton, Paradise Lost
And for the record, pace Fish, Kerrigan, etc., Milton's God by William Empson is the only way to go re: Satan, God, and which side are you on.
