Ludovico Ariosto (8 September 1474 – 6 July 1533) was an Italian poet, author of the epic poem Orlando furioso (1516), "Orlando Enraged".
Orlando Furioso (1516)
- Natura il fece, e poi roppe la stampa.
- Translation: Nature made him, and then broke the mould.
- X, 84
- For rarely man escapes his destiny.
- But that he wrought so high the specious tale,
As manifested plainly 'twas a lie.
- Who seems most hideous when adorned the most.
- Man proposes, and God disposes.
