Quotes[edit]

  • As armas e os barões assinalados
    Que, da ocidental praia lusitana
    Por mares nunca de antes navegados
    Passaram ainda além da Taprobana
    E em perigos e guerras esforçados
    Mais do que permitia a força humana
    Entre gente remota edificaram
    Novo Reino, que tanto sublimaram.
    • Arms and the Heroes, who from Lisbon's shore,
      Thro' seas where sail was never spread before,
      Beyond where Ceylon lifts her spicy breast,
      And waves her woods above the watery waste,
      With prowess more than human forc'd their way
      To the fair kingdoms of the rising day:
      What wars they wag'd, what seas, what dangers past,
      What glorious empire crown'd their toils at last.
  • Ó mar salgado, quanto do teu sal
    São lágrimas de Portugal!
    • Oh salty sea, how much of your salt
      are tears of Portugal!
    • Fernando Pessoa, Poem "Mar Português" (1934), lines 1–2.
