John Milton
1608 - 1674

English poet, Puritan, author of the great epic poem Paradise Lost (1667)

Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.

1644 - from Areopagitica
What though, the field be lost? All is not lost; th'unconquerable will, And study of revenge, immortal hate, And courage never to submit or yield.

1667 - from Paradise Lost
