From my little research it is in the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, the Vatican Library. I could be mistaken, of course.

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.

SMK is right, but you can always visit the Vaitcan website to double check ;). Also Cambridge and Oxford have amazing resources as well.

The secret of life is'nt trying to figure out the secret, its about living it.

Are you by any chance, reading Dan Brown's Inferno?

You can go the distance, you can run the mile and you can walk straight through HELL with a smile.

It suggests someone might have picked up and read Dan Brown.

I know, but other people might have read it. Presumably, the poor person who wrote the review did. I hope he got an air-sick bag first.

Awful books with subjects deliberately chosen to cause controversy so people will buy the book to find out what all the fuss is about. Only to then find themselves reading complete drivel, badly written and with characters that are too 2 dimensional for even a  graphic novel.

You can try finding information on it through the game, and than try to verify it...
