[Milton-L] One should abstain from Milton quotes if . . .

Not meant as an offense against Catholics (me included), but.
In a recent written statement, the head of the Pontifical Council for
the Family, the Italian bishop Vincenzo Paglia, reported a quotation
from Milton. No source indicated, so this is just a back-version from
Italian:
"A good marriage is a pleasant and happy conversation."
He probably aimed to look well-read, but probably found the sentence
in Chinese biscuits or the like. Someone here should be so kind as to
inform him about the life & works of John Milton with reference to
marriage.

Best!
