This statement can be interpreted in so many ways. What is YOUR interpretation of this statement?
Lucifer explains it himself around the same point in the story: "The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven."
Basically meaning that personal happiness and/or personal freedom is what determines one's state of fulfillment, not their location or their circumstances.
You have presented an excellent interpretation of the statement. I interpret it somewhat similarly. I will do and believe as I like(not harming others); if others want me to conform to and/or agree with their respective majority construct, I will do as I ---------------- please even if they dislike, even hate me. Others' approval or disapproval does not bother me in the least. As the saying goes, I would rather be DISLIKED, EVEN HATED for who I AM than to be liked, even loved for who I AM NOT!
