In the very heart of the Divine Comedy, Virgil explains the nature and source of our motivations, and how they can be misguided even if they feel good. This also lies at the center of the overall argument in the Comedy, that the path to Happiness comes through deeping self-insight, and through choosing the constructive actions to create a great life and future.
