"Law to ourselves, our reason is our law" -> "As law unto ourselves, our reason is our law"
I don't think your suggestion matches the Japanese.
The Japanese also seems rather strange. Perhaps Tommy could help make this a good sentence pair.
> The Japanese also seems rather strange.
Yeah. I can't understand what it means.
The line is from John Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost’, Book 9:
Serpent, we might have spar'd our coming hither,
Fruitless to mee, though Fruit be here to excess,
The credit of whose vertue rest with thee,
Wondrous indeed, if cause of such effects.
But of this Tree we may not taste nor touch;
God so commanded, and left that Command
Sole Daughter of his voice; the rest, we live
Law to our selves, our Reason is our Law.
I would suggest either completing the quote or deleting both sentences.
Native english speaker and don't understand
Enough time has passed, so I'm going to delete them both.
