“O salty sea, so much of whose salt
Is Portugal tears! All the mothers
Who had to weep for us to cross you!
All the sons who prayed in vain!
All the brides-to-be who never
Married for you to be ours, O sea!
Was it worth doing? Everything’s worth doing
If the soul of the doer isn´t small.
Whoever would go beyond the Cape
Must go beyond sorrow.
God placed danger and the abyss in the sea,
But he also made it heaven’s mirror.”
— The Portuguese Sea by Fernando Pessoa
