These people have no religion, neither are they idolaters, but are a very gentle race, without the knowledge of any iniquity they neither kill, nor steal, nor carry weapons... they have a knowledge that there is a God above, and are firmly persuaded that we have come from heaven.

Christopher Columbus
Weep for me, whoever has charity, truth and justice! I did not come on this voyage for gain, honor or wealth, that is certain for then the hope of all such things was dead. I came to Your Highnesses with honest purpose and sincere zeal and I do not lie. I humbly beseech Your Highnesses that, if it please God to remove me hence, you will help me to go to Rome and on other pilgrimages.
