Dante Alighieri Quote

"Why is thy mind so entangled," said the Master [Virgil], "that thou slackenest thy pace? What is it to thee what they whisper there? Come after me and let the people talk. Stand like a firm tower that never shakes its top for blast of wind."


The Divine Comedy. Purgatorio, V, l. 10
