    Behold now this vast city; a city of refuge, the mansion house of liberty, encompassed and surrounded with his protection; the shop of war hath not there more anvils and hammers waking, to fashion out the plates and instruments of armed justice in defence of beleaguered truth, than there be pens and hands there, sitting by their studious lamps, musing, searching, revolving new notions.

    A process of genocide is being carried out before the eyes of the world.
    —Pope John Paul II (b. 1920)

    Thus Satan talking to his neerest Mate
    With Head up-lift above the wave, and Eyes
    That sparkling blaz’d, his other Parts besides
    Prone on the Flood, extended long and large
    Lay floating many a rood, in bulk as huge
    As whom the Fables name of monstrous size,
    Titanian, or Earth-born, that warr’d on Jove,
    Briarios or Typhon, whom the Den
    By ancient Tarsus held, or that Sea-beast
    Leviathan,
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
