Lasciate ogni speranza voi ch'entrate!" (Abandon all hope, you who enter!)
Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita" (Midway along the path of our life)
Non ragioniam di lor, ma guarda, e passa." (Let us not speak of them, but look, and pass on.)
... Nessun maggior dolore Che ricordarsi del tempo felice Nella miseria." (There is no greater pain than to remember a happy time when one is in misery.)
E'n la sua volontade e nostra pace." (In His will is our peace.)

You shall find out how salt is the taste of another man's bread, and how hard is the way up and down another man's stairs.
Tu proverai si come sa di sale, Lo pane altrui, e com'e duro calle, Lo scendere e'l salir per l'altrui scale.
The more a thing is perfect, the more it feels pleasure and pain.
Consider your origin. You were not formed to live like brutes but to follow virtue and knowledge.
There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in times of misery
Midway upon the journey of our life, I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.
The devil is not as black as he is painted.
Into the eternal darkness, into fire and into ice.
I did not die, and yet I lost life’s breath
If the present world go astray, the cause is in you, in you it is to be sought.
The path to paradise begins in hell.
Nature is the art of God.
A mighty flame followeth a tiny spark.
Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal.
Remember tonight... for it is the beginning of always.
Follow your path, and let the people talk.
Everywhere is here and every when is now.
The secret of getting things done is to act!
If your world isn't right, the cause is in you.
Beauty awakens the soul to act.
If you give people light, they will find their own way.
