Alighieri Dante

Italian Poet, Statesman and Language Theorist

"Mankind is at its best when it is most free. This will be clear if we grasp the principle of liberty. We must realize that the basic principle of our freedom is freedom to choose, which saying many have on their lips but few in their minds."

"There is no greater pain than to recall a happy time in wretchedness."
