“We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our
Children” (Native American Proverb)

Os Lusiadas is an epic poem that focuses mainly on the Portuguese discoveries movement, in the 14th to 17th centuries.

AS armas e os Barões assinalados
Que da Ocidental praia Lusitana
Por mares nunca de antes navegados
Passaram ainda além da Taprobana,
Em perigos e guerras esforçados
Mais do que prometia a força humana,
E entre gente remota edificaram
Novo Reino, que tanto sublimaram;

From Os Lusiadas (Canto Primeiro), by Luís Vaz de Camões (1524-1580)

1. The designated weapons and Barons // That of the Lusitana Occidental beach people // For seas never sailed before // They passed beyond Taprobana, //// In strengthen dangers and wars // More than the force promised to the human being, //// And between remote people they had built // New Kingdom, that was made so sublime;

(My own translation! Comments are welcome!)

1. Arms are my theme, and those matchless heroes // Who from Portugal's far western shores // By oceans where none had ventured // Voyaged to Trapobana and beyond, //// Enduring hazards and assaults // Such as drew on more than human prowess //// Among far distant peoples, to proclaim // A New Age and win undying fame
