Apropos of nothing, and not specifically Miltonic, I came upon this
quotation from John F Kennedy, shared on Facebook by one future
presidential  hopeful, Cory Booker.

"When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his
limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds
him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry
cleanses."

JFK
