Dante Alighieri(c. 1265 – 1321) was one of the most influential Italian poets of the Middle Ages. His best known work is La Divina Commedia(The Divine Comedy), which is regarded as one of the greatest Italian literary pieces ever written.
Here are Dante Alighieri’s top ten greatest quotes:
Do not be afraid; our fate Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.
Be as a tower firmly set; Shakes not its top for any blast that blows.
Where the way is hardest, there go though; Follow your path, and let the people talk.
Love, that moves the sun and the other stars.
Consider your origins: you were not made to live as brutes, but to follow virtue and knowledge.
If you give people light, they will find their own way.
The secret of getting things done is to act!
Beauty awakens the soul to act.
If your world isn’t right, the cause is in you.
Remember tonight… for it is the beginning of always.
