fleeting like the wind

“Worldly fame is nothing but a gust of wind,

first blowing from one quarter, then another,

changing name with every new direction.”

-Purgaturio XI:100-102, Divine Comedy by Dante Alghieri

note: quoted in How Dante Can Save Your Life by Rod Dreher which I’m currently reading.
