Silenzio. Silenzio. Twenty-two years ago, I stood where I stand now – and watched my loved ones die, betrayed by those I had called friends. Vengeance clouded my mind. It would have consumed me, were it not for the wisdom of a few strangers, who taught me to look past my instincts. They never preached answers, but guided me to learn from myself. We don't need anyone to tell us what to do; not Savonarola, not the Medici. We are free to follow our own path. There are those who will take that freedom from us, and too many of you gladly give it. But it is our ability to choose – whatever you think is true – that makes us human... There is no book or teacher to give you the answers, to show you the path. Choose your own way! Do not follow me, or anyone else.
When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.
I have lived my life as best I could, not knowing its purpose, but drawn forward like a moth to a distant moon. And here at last, I discover a strange truth. That I am only a conduit, for a message that eludes my understanding.

I do this not for myself. Compio questo sacrificio per il bene superiore (I make this sacrifice for the greater good). Requiescant in pace (Rest in peace).
I thought, I thought I was beyond this. But I'm not... I've waited too long...lost too much! Requiescant in pace (Rest in peace), you bastard...!
Vai, amico, libero da fardelli e paure (Go forward, friend, unburdened and unafraid). Requiescant in pace (Rest in peace).
Non temete l'oscurita - accettate il suo abbraccio (Fear not the darkness - but welcome its embrace). Requiescant in pace (Rest in peace).
Che nessuno recordi I'll tuo nome. Requiescat in Pace." ("May no-one remember your name. Rest in peace.")
