  • Paracelsus: Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.
    Vincent: Paracelsus.
    Paracelsus: Milton, actually.

    …What matter where, if I be still the same,
    And what I should be, all but less then he
    Whom thunder hath made greater? Here at least
    We shall be free; the Almighty hath not built
    Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
    Here we may reign secure, and in my choice
    To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
    Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heaven….
