“Through me is the way to the city of woe.

Through me is the way to sorrow eternal.

Through me is the way to the lost below. Justice moved my architect supernal.

I was constructed by divine power,

supreme wisdom, and love primordial.

Before me no created things were.

Save those eternal, and eternal I abide.

Abandon all hope, you who enter.”

― Dante Alighieri, Inferno
