    That’s a misquote. I have a bilingual edition of the Divine Comedy with the Renaissance Italian and English on facing pages. Using the skills that went into my linguistics degree, I translated the italian for myself. The original phrase is

    “Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate”

    , which is

    “Abandon all hope, those who enter here.”

    There’s quite a difference between “Abandon all hope…” and “Abandon hope, all ye…”.

    I get snarky when people misquote great literature.

    “Did they at least leave us some water & food??”

      There is a large retirement community in my Florida town that locals tend to refer to as God’s waiting room. Usually when I hear someone say that I will interject with “or perhaps Satan’s?”

        I often say that Florida is the home of the newly wed and the nearly dead, but I like Satan’s Waiting Room a lot!
