"Well! you shall leave,
Ñamandu's small child:
let your strength be great in the earthly home;
and even if things in their entirety,
all without resemblance,
rise, haunted,
may your heart be great! "

(Transcription of the mythical Guarani Mbya narrative collected by Cadogan in 1959, available in "The Holy Speech", Pierre Clastres, 1974)
