‘What fate or fortune led

Thee down into this place, ere thy last day?

Who is it that thy steps hath piloted?’

‘Above there in the clear world on my way,’

I answered him, ‘lost in a vale of gloom,

Before my age was full, I went astray.’

Dante’s Inferno, Canto XV

I know that’s a secret, for it’s whispered everywhere.

William Congreve, Love for Love
