Overview

Excerpt from Travels Through Portugal and Spain, in 1772-1773

Una de las cofas en que se vee la grandeza del animo del hombre, y la parte mortal adonde aspira, es el no hallarse contento, ni satisfecho en un lugar, procurando hartar su deseo, inclinado a diversidad de cosas, rodeando el mundo, y tentando diferentes lugares para hurtar el cuerpo á los fastidios de la vida. Disc. prelim. á la Araucana.

The meaning of which is, "Nothing perhaps more evidently proves the greatness of the mind of man, and the immortality to which it aspires, than not finding ourselves contented or satisfied in one place, but procuring the gratification of our desires, which are inclined to a diversity of objects, by rambling about the world, and visiting different places, to steal (as it were) ourselves from the cares of life."
