Page 5 - Credette Cimabue nella pittura Tener lo campo, ed ora ha Giotto il grido, SI che la fama di colui oscura.
Page 5 - Cimabue thought to hold the field in painting, and now Giotto has the cry, so that the fame of him is obscured.
Page 5 - Ben non sare' io stato sì cortese mentre ch'io vissi, per lo gran disio de l'eccellenza ove mio core intese. Di tal superbia qui si paga il fio; e ancor non sarei qui, se non fosse che, possendo peccar, mi volsi a Dio. Oh vana gloria de l'umane posse! com' poco verde in su la cima dura, se non è giunta da l'etati grosse!
