These closing lines of Dante’s Divine Comedy, reached after a long upward journey from the pits to Paradise, leave you floating. And what internal harmony and congruity – your wishes and your will rotating in sync with the same universe-turning wheel.
‘… but now, just like a wheel
That spins so evenly it measures time
By space, the deepest wish that I could feel
And all my will, were turning with the love
That moves the sun and all the stars above.’
