Ged"But I, in truth, have been once here before: that savage witch Erichte, she who called the shades back to their bodies summoned me. My flesh had not been long striped off when she had me descend through all the rings of Hell, to draw a spirit back from the Betrayer's circle. That is the deepest and the darkest place, the farthest from the heaven girds all: so rest assured I know the pathway all."

- Dante

Ah, yes, Dante :).

"Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita mi ritrovai per una selva oscura che' la diritta via era smarrita.

Ahi quanto a dir qual era e` cosa dura esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte che nel pensier rinova la paura!"

"IN the midway of this our mortal life, I found me in a gloomy wood, astray Gone from the path direct: and e'en to tell

It were no easy task, how savage wild That forest, how robust and rough its growth, Which to remember only, my dismay"

Het denken mag zich nooit onderwerpen, noch aan een dogma, noch aan een partij, noch aan een hartstocht, noch aan een belang, noch aan een vooroordeel, noch aan om het even wat, maar uitsluitend aan de feiten zelf, want zich onderwerpen betekent het einde van alle denken.

I like that one :)

Just to check I got the translation right though

He who thinks can never submit himself not to a dogma, nor to a party, nor to a passion, nor to an importance, nor to a preconception, nor to no matter what, (anything?) but exclusively to the facts themselves, because to submit (dutch gets rusty here) himself(?) to anything else (other than the facts) means the end of all thinking.

I think that's right :confused:

Close:

Would be better methinks :).
