"Farewell happy fields
where joy forever dwells: hail horrors, hail
infernal world, and thou profondest hell
recieve thy new possessor: one who brings
a mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself
can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
Here at least we shall be free...
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
