Normally we are asked to quote something from our recent reading. I recently read an email from a friend of mine in Brazil. This was the quote in his signature with both the original Portuguese and an English translation:

"Ninguém caminha sem aprender a caminhar, sem aprender a fazer o caminho caminhando, refazendo e retocando o sonho pelo qual se colocou a caminhar."

"No one treads without learning to tread - without learning how to tread by treading, without learning to remake, to retouch, the dream for whose cause the treaders have set off down the road." - Paulo Freire
