“Joao Urso had thought of the punishment, and had soon abandoned all thought of the procession. He had been sure, absolutely sure, that his mother would punish him, bind him to the high stool, fill his hands with sonnets - romantic sonnets to be recited without a single mistake.”
-Breno Accioly, “Joao Urso”

“When the people there on Orient Street rode at all, it was in a streetcar. Automobiles and coaches were only for a funeral. A funeral or a wedding. That is why Gaetaninho’s dream had never come true. Just a dream.
Take Beppino, for example. That afternoon he got a ride across town to Araca in a coach. But how? By being in his Aunt Permetta’s funeral procession. That was about the only way. Patience.”
- Antonio de Alcantara Machado, “Gaetaninho”
