Dante Alighieri Quotes

Within her presence, I had once been used
to feeling - trembling - wonder, dissolution;
but that was long ago. Still, though my soul,
now she was veiled, could not see her directly,
by way of hidden force that she could move,
I felt the mighty power of old love.

L'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle.

Remember tonight... for it is the beginning of always

The wisest are the most annoyed at the loss of time.

Mentre che la speranza ha fior del verde

Thy soul is by vile fear assailed

A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.

Those ancients who in poetry presented
the golden age, who sang its happy state,
perhaps, in their Parnassus, dreamt this place.
Here, mankind's root was innocent; and here
were every fruit and never-ending spring;
these streams-the nectar of which poets sing.

Do not be afraid; our fate
Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.

Beauty awakens the soul to act.

Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal.

The wish to hear such baseness is degrading.

There is no greater sorrow than to recall our time of joy in wretchedness.

I felt for the tormented whirlwinds
Damned for their carnal sins
Committed when they let their passions rule their reason.

When you are nearer, you will understand how much your eyesight is deceived by distance. Therefore, push yourself a little harder.
