PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
The Divine Comedy
QUOTATION: Medusa, come, well turn him into stone, they
shouted all together glaring down, how wrong we were to let off
QUOTATION: There sighs, lamentations and loud wailings resounded through
the starless air, so that at first it made me weep; strange tongues, horrible
language, words of pain, tones of anger, voices loud and hoarse, and with
these the sound of hands, made a tumult which is whirling through that
air forever dark, as sand eddies in a whirlwind.
QUOTATION: O power of fantasy that steals our minds from things outside,
to leave us unaware, although a thousand trumpets may blow loudwhat
stirs you if the senses show you nothing? Light stirs you, formed in Heaven,
by itself, or by His will Who sends it down to us.
QUOTATION: If anyone should want to know my name, I am called Leah. And
I spend all my time weaving garlands of flowers with my fair hands, to
please me when I stand before the mirror; my sister Rachel sits all the
day long before her own, and never moves away. She loves to contemplate
her lovely eyes; I love to use my hands to adorn myself: her joy is in
reflection, mine in act.
QUOTATION: O conscience, upright and stainless, how bitter a sting to
thee is a little fault!
