LUDOVICO ARIOSTO
Italian poet
(1474 - 1533)

I regret not death. I am going to meet my friends in another world.
      - [Death]

Nature made him, and then broke the mold.
      - [Individuality]

Neptune's white herds lowing o'er the deep.
      - [Ocean]

There never was such beauty in another man.
  Nature made him, and then broke the mould.
    [Fr., Non e un si bello in tante altre persone,
      Natura il fece, e poi roppa la stampa.]
      - Orlando Furioso (canto X, st. 84) [Man]

Man proposes, and God disposes.
  [It., Ordina l'uomo, e dio dispone.]
      - Orlando Furioso (ch. XLVI, 35)
        [God : Proverbs]

For rarely man escapes his destiny.
  [It., Che l'uomo il suo destin fugge di raro.]
      - Orlando Furioso (XVIII, 58) [Destiny]

But that he wrought so high the specious tale,
  As manifested plainly 'twas a lie.
    [Lat., Se non volea pulir sua scusa tanto,
      Che la facesse di menzogna rea.]
      - Orlando Furioso (XVIII, 84) [Lying]

Who seems most hideous when adorned the most.
  [Lat., Che quant' era piu ornata, era piu brutta.]
      - Orlando Furioso (XX, 116) [Apparel]

Such fire was not by water to be drown'd,
  Nor he his nature changed by changing ground.
    [Lat., Ne spegner puo per star nell'acqua il foco;
      Ne puo stato mutar per mutar loco.]
      - Orlando Furioso (XXVIII, 89) [Change]
