1. "Stay honest and keep your head down. You'll sleep better at night, and it all works out."
    A random older guy at a coffee shop imparted this advice to me after starting up a conversation about taking notes with an expensive ink pen on legal pads back in the day.
  2. "Temer si dee di solo quelle cose / c'hanno potenza di fare altrui male / de l'altre no, che non son paurose" ~ One must fear only those things / that have the power to do one harm / the others no, for they are not frightening.
    Dante, Inf. II, 88-90
  3. "E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle." ~ And so we emerged to see, again, the stars
    Dante, Inf. XXXIV, 139
