unmoved mover

"The last line of the “Divine Comedy,” in which Dante is faced with the vision of God Himself, is a sentiment that is still easily understandable by anyone familiar with so-called modern Italian. Dante writes that God is not merely a blinding vision of glorious light, but that He is, most of all, l’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle..“The love that moves the sun and other stars."

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia, Elizabeth Gilbert
