* S'io credessi che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per cio che giammai di questo fondo
non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

- Dante’s Inferno, XXVII; 61-66

(“If I believed that my answer were to
a person who could ever return to the world,
this flame would no longer quiver.
But because no one ever returned
from this depth, if what I hear is true,
without fear of infamy, I will answer you.”)
