"Com a graça de Deus e as bênçãos dos Orixás."

"Branco puro, na Bahia, quem? Negro puro, na Bahia, onde? Somos mulatos, felizmente! (...) Com a graça de Deus e as bênçãos dos Orixás."

(Jorge Amado)

"Pure white in Bahia, who? Pure black in Bahia, where? We are mulattoes, thankfully! (...) With the grace of God and the blessings of the Orishas*."
