„Do you not know that we are worms and born
To form the angelic butterfly that soars,
Without defenses, to confront His judgment?“

— Dante Alighieri
Context: O Christians, arrogant, exhausted, wretched, Whose intellects are sick and cannot see, Who place your confidence in backward steps, Do you not know that we are worms and born To form the angelic butterfly that soars, Without defenses, to confront His judgment? Why does your mind presume to flight when you Are still like the imperfect grub, the worm Before it has attained its final form? Canto X, lines 121–129 (tr. Mandelbaum).

„But now was turning my desire and will,
Even as a wheel that equally is moved,“

— Dante Alighieri
Context: p>As the geometrician, who endeavours To square the circle, and discovers not, By taking thought, the principle he wants,Even such was I at that new apparition; I wished to see how the image to the circle Conformed itself, and how it there finds place;But my own wings were not enough for this, Had it not been that then my mind there smote A flash of lightning, wherein came its wish. Here vigour failed the lofty fantasy: But now was turning my desire and will, Even as a wheel that equally is moved,The Love which moves the sun and the other stars.</p Canto XXXIII, closing lines, as translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
