Dante Alighieri – The Divine Comedy.

“Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I shall endure.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.”

                                                   ― Dante Alighieri,The Divine Comedy.

You’ll be fond of me.

“You will always be fond of me. 
I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.” 

                                                   ― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The Hunter.

Native American poetry
The Hunters 

“There were but two beneath the sky

The thing I came to kill, and I. 

I, under covert, quietly 

Watched him sense eternity 

From quivering brush to pointed nose 

My gun to shoulder level rose 

And then I felt (I could not see) 

Far off a hunter watching me. 

I slowly put my rifle by, 

For there were two who had to die с 

The thing I wished to kill, 

and I. “

                                                         ~Black Elk, of the Oglala Sioux 1863-1950

Our Time.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” 

                                                                            ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring.
