“We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust."

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

....Work. Keep digging your well. Don't think about getting off from work. Water is there somewhere. Submit to a daily practice. Your loyalty to that is a ring on the door. Keep knocking, and the joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who's there." (Rumi)

Inside Dante there is everything. There is Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. There is Groucho Marx. There is Shakespeare. There is Homer. There is God. There is the devil. There is your life. You can see ‘The Divine Comedy’ like a movie with a perfect script. It’s like a cliffhanger, like commedia dell’arte, like a variety show. There are low things. There are high things. When he prays to the Virgin Mary– in 2,000 years of poetry nobody has ever written a poem to a woman with such beauty.” – Roberto Benigni
