In Memoriam

D. Pedro V 03

Studying is a life’s task; the most faithful, the safest guide and companion in our pilgrimage on this world. (…) Do not neglect the books in favour of diplomas: the former are always valuable, the latter are worth only once; the former instruct, the latter often elude.

King Peter V of Portugal (born on 16 September 1837)

  1. He sounds rather like Dom Pedro II of Brazil in that quote. A similar low-key, studious mentality. I can’t remember if they ever met.
