All your renown is like the summer flower that blooms and dies; because the sunny glow which brings it forth, soon slays with parching power.

A Quote by Dante Alighieri on day, dogs, food, justice, and weather

Here we find the moat of thieves. And just as a lizard, with a quick, slick slither, Flicks across the highway from hedge to hedge, Fleeter than a flash, in the battering dog-day weather, A fiery little monster, livid, in a rage, Black as any peppercorn, came and made a dart At the guts of the others, and leaping to engage One of the pair, it pierced him at the part Through which we first draw food; then loosed its grip And fell before him, outstretched and apart.

A Quote by Dante Alighieri on angels, day, fatherhood, forgiveness, god, grace, heaven, humility, learning, love, men, merit, peace, power, praise, prayer, pride, proof, and strength

They find seven cornices on which penitent and redeemed sinners are cleansed by the grace of God. On the first cornice, that of Pride, the proud are learning humility: Our Father, dwelling in the Heavens, nowise As circumscribed, but as the things above, Thy first effects, are dearer in Thine eyes, Hallowed Thy name be and the Power thereof, By every creature, as right meet it is We praise the tender effluence of Thy love. Let come to us, let come Thy kingdom's peace; If it come not, we've no power of our own To come to it, for all our subtleties. Like as with glad Hosannas at Thy throne Thine angels offer up their wills alway, So let men offer theirs, that Thine be done. Our daily manna give to us this day, Without which he that through this desert wild Toils most to speed goes backward on his way. As we, with all our debtors reconciled, Forgive, do thou forgive us, nor regard Our merits, but upon our sins look mild. Put not our strength, too easily ensnared And overcome, to proof with the old foe; But save us from him, for he tries it hard. This last prayer is not made for us-we know Dear Lord, that it is needless-but for those Who still remain behind us we pray so.
