Giovanni Boccaccio

Giovanni Boccaccio (c. 1313-1375)

“I maintain that if one conducts one’s life virtuously, there is no reason to be afraid of any dream that encourages one to behave differently or to abandon one’s good intentions because of it.”

  • The Decameron (Fourth Day, Sixth Story) by Giovanni Boccaccio, translated by G. H. McWilliam. New York: Penguin Classics, 2003.
