Quotes[edit]

  • En tantas de la muerte liberias,
    Los cuerpos de esos huesos mal seguro
    Estudia Julio, y en su letra advierte,
    que son abecedarios de la muerte!
    • Julio, in those libraries of death
      study the bodies of those bones—an assured evil;
      and learn from those characters
      that they form the abecedary of death!
    • San Ignacio de Loyola (1666), Poema heroyco ('Heroic Poem of Saint Ignatius of Loyola'), Book IV, Canto 6.
