5 Quotes That Should Have Been Posted On The Gates Of Hell

The original quote, "I AM THE WAY INTO THE CITY OF WOE. I AM THE WAY TO A FORSAKEN PEOPLE. I AM THE WAY INTO ETERNAL SORROW. SACRED JUSTICE MOVED MY ARCHITECT. I WAS RAISED HERE BY DIVINE OMNIPOTENCE, PRIMORDIAL LOVE AND ULTIMATE INTELLECT ONLY THOSE ELEMENTS TIME CANNOT WEAR WERE MADE BEFORE ME, AND BEYOND TIME I STAND. ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE" by DANTE ALIGHIERI (Cantos II), is just too dark and threatening. Maybe, he should have used these 5 quotes instead!

"JK. There still are devils here! You probably won't survive! Have a good trip!"

2. "You couldn't handle me even if I came with instructions." ~Unknown

I mean it's too true... Dante wouldn't have survived Hell without Virgil...

3. "Don't think, just do." ~Horace

Dante didn't think, he just jumped straight into Hell.

4. "Welcome. May all who come as guests, leave as friends." ~Unknown

I mean, we all love good old Lucifer, don't we?

5. "You know why God cast me down? Because I loved him. More than anything. Now tell me, does the punishment fit the crime?" ~Lucifer from Supernatural

What if the gate was written in the Devil's point of view instead of God's? Would the story still be the same?
