If I am worthy to hear thy words, tell me if thou comest from Hell, and from what cloister. Through all the circles of the realm of woe, replied he to him, am I come hither; Power of Heaven moved me, and with it I come. Not by doing, but by not doing have I lost the sight of the high Sun whom thou desirest, and who by me was known late. A place there is below not sad with torments but with darkness only, where the lamentations sound not as wailings, but are sighs; there stay I with the little innocents bitten by the teeth of death before they were exempt from human sin; there stay I with those who were not vested with the three holy virtues, and without vice knew the others and followed all of them.

Synopsis:

The second part of Dante's "The Divine Comedy" describes his journey to the renunciation of sin, and accepting his suffering in preparation for his entrance into the presence of God.
