To inhabit caves and to see only forests,
to flee from the world, in miserable slavery?
To lose our brothers, mother country and parents, 5
friends, children and relatives all?
Better we live free a moment
that forty years servants and captives!
As what it serves to live if you are enslaved?

and to drink your blood always it treats.
