"What Would Satan Do?" Quotes pulled from John Milton's epic cut through the philosophical fluff of the ages to the essence of power, spin, and strategy. The quotes suggest actions that vary from the sensible to the sinister. Milton's words hold their own against Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings, or Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. Paradise Lost works as a how-to get what you want in life or instruction manual in spin, niche marketing, employee motivation, outsourcing, hostile takeovers, and geoarbitrage. Read the quotes on the subway, while you are stuck in traffic, or while your boss has their back turned to you pointing at some chart.
These words from Milton are actionable, but take action at your own risk.
