[Dante Alighieri] and thence we came forth to see again the stars
Durante degli Alighieri (commonly known as just Dante) was an Italian poet of the Late Middle Ages. Famous for writing The Divine Comedy.
One of my favorite verses was the last verse of Inferno 34, which he wrote:
"e quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle"
(translated into “and thence we came forth to see again the stars”)
Others have also translated it to: "we emerged to see—once more—the stars"
