Superbia, invidia e avarizia sono
le tre faville c'hanno i cuori accesi.

O dignitosa coscïenza, e netta,
come t'è piccioli fallo amaro morso!

E 'n la sua volontade è nostra pace.

Lo maggior don che Dio per sua larghezza
fesse creando, e a la sua bontate
più conformato, e quel ch'e' più apprezza,
fu de la volontà la libertate;
di che le creature intelligenti,
e tutte e sole, fuore e son dotate.

  • The greatest gift that in His bounty made in creation, and the most conformable to His goodness, and that which He prizes the most, was the freedom of will, with which the creatures with intelligence, they all and they alone, were and are endowed.

Dante about Divine Love

Nel suo profondo vidi che s'interna,
legato con amore in un volume,
ciò che per l'universo si squaderna.

  • I saw within Its depth how It conceives all things in a single volume bound by , of which the universe is the scattered leaves.

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