WHy does Jack's character ask at his board meeting If they had read The Divine COmedy? well, perhaps because of quotes like this:
Midway upon the road of our life I found myself within a dark wood, for the right way had been missed.
And as is he who unwills what he willed, and because of new thoughts changes his design, so that he quite withdraws from beginning, such I became on that dark hillside: wherefore in my thought I abandoned the enterprise which had been so hasty in the beginning.
Thy soul is hurt by cowardice, which oftentimes encumbereth a man so that it turns him back from honorable enterprise.
