Quantidade:

“D. Lourenço de Almeida, the illustrious founder of Quinta da Lapa, chose this sublime, timeless, poem of faith by Saint Teresa of Ávila as the motto etched above the doorstep of his Manor House. Born in 1515 in the province of Ávila in Spain, Teresa de Ahumada was an extraordinary woman, reknown for her intelligence and charisma. Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.”
