Dante Delivers

“Nature is the art of God.” Dante Alighieri

Dante Alighieri was born today, May 14, in 1265. A poet, author, and philosopher, he is best known for the Divine Comedy, widely viewed as the most important poem of the Middle Ages. To inspire us today, a gathering of his words of wisdom:

“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.”

“Remember tonight… for it is the beginning of always.”

“In the middle of the journey of our life I came to myself within a dark wood where the straight way was lost.”

“From a little spark may burst a flame.”

“The secret of getting things done is to act!”

“Pride, envy, avarice — these are the sparks have set on fire the hearts of all men.”

“Heaven wheels above you, displaying to you her eternal glories, and still your eyes are on the ground.”

“Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from the eternal.”

“I love to doubt as well as to know.”

“The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.”

“Worldly fame is but a breath of wind that blows now this way, and now that, and changes name as it changes direction.”

“Small projects need much more help than great.”

“I wept not, so to stone within I grew.”

“Beauty awakens the soul to act.”

“Follow your own star!”

Bravo, Dante! And now, emboldened and enlivened, let’s all write on!
