Dante Alighieri (c. 1265-1321)
“The highest Good
Unlimited, ineffable, doth so speed
To love, as beam to lucid body darts,
Giving as much of ardour as it finds.”
- Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy (Purgatory, Canto XV), translated by Henry F. Cary in the Harvard Classics series, edited by Charles W. Eliot, and published by P. F. Collier & Son (1909, 1937).
