Frases Torquato Tasso

„The sacred armies, and the godly knight,
That the great sepulchre of Christ did free,
I sing“

— Torquato Tasso
Context: The sacred armies, and the godly knight, That the great sepulchre of Christ did free, I sing; much wrought his valor and foresight, And in that glorious war much suffered he; In vain 'gainst him did Hell oppose her might, In vain the Turks and Morians armed be: His soldiers wild, to brawls and mutinies prest, Reduced he to peace, so Heaven him blest. Canto I, stanza 1 (tr. Edward Fairfax)

„Loved much, hoped little, and desired nought.“

— Torquato Tasso
Context: She fair, he full of bashfulness and truth, Loved much, hoped little, and desired nought. Canto II, stanza 16 (tr. Fairfax)
