C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Satan
 
  Satan, as a master, is bad; his work much worse; and his wages worst of all.
Fuller.    
  1
        Here we may reign secure; and in my choice
To reign is worth ambition, though in hell.
Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.
Milton.    
  2
        The infernal serpent; he it was, whose guile,
Stirr’d up with envy and revenge, deceiv’d
The mother of mankind.
Milton.    
  3
  If Satan doth fetter us, ’tis indifferent to him whether it be by a cable or by hair; nay, perhaps the smallest sins are his greatest stratagems.
Fuller.    
  4
        Meanwhile the adversary of God and man,
Satan, with thoughts inflam’d of highest design,
Puts on swift wings, and towards the gates of Hell
Explores his solitary flight; sometimes
He scours the right hand coast, sometimes the left:
Now shaves with level wing the deep; then soars
Up to the fiery concave, tow’ring high.
Milton.
