241. oldal - But you will say to me, this people, this republic, this state cannot be supported without Indians. Who is to bring us a pitcher of water or a bundle of wood ? Who is to plant our mandioc ? Must our wives do it ? Must our children do it ? In the first place, as you will presently see, these are not the straits in which I would place you : but if necessity and conscience require it, then I reply, yes ! and I repeat it, yes ! you and your wives and your children ought to do it !

241. oldal - In the first place, as you will presently see, these are not the straits in which I would place you ; but if necessity and conscience require it, then I reply, yes ! and I repeat it, yes ! you, and your wives, and your children ought to do it ! We ought to support ourselves with our own hands ; for better is it to be supported by the sweat of one's own brow than by another's blood. O ye riches of Maranham !

Neither in the partition of friends and relations was any law kept, only each fell where the lot took him. O powerful Fortune! who goest hither and thither with thy wheels...
110. oldal - they are a loving, uncovetous people, so docile in all -things, that I assure your Highnesses I believe in all the world there is not a better people, or a better country : they love their neighbours as themselves, and they have the sweetest and gentlest way of talking in the world, and always with a smile...
35. oldal - ... around, who in that day gave rest to their hands, the mainstay of their livelihood, only to see this novelty. And as they looked upon these things, some deploring, some reasoning upon them, they made such a riotous noise, as greatly to disturb those who had the management of this distribution.
105. oldal - The same afterwards came swimming to the ship's boats where we were, and brought us parrots, cotton threads in balls, darts and many other things, and bartered them with us for things which we gave them, such as bells and small glass beads. In fine, they took and gave all of whatever they had with good will. But it appeared to me they were a people very poor in everything. They went totally naked, as naked as their mothers brought them into the world.
110. oldal - Almirante-, son gente de amor y sin codicia y convenibles para toda cosa, que certifico a Vuestras Altezas que en el mundo creo que no hay mejor gente ni mejor tierra: ellos aman a sus prójimos como a sí mismos, y tienen una habla la más dulce del mundo y mansa, y siempre con risa.
