Namesake: Gabriela Mistral

A true poet once said:

(Rough translation): “I would only like to be one of the reasons for your smile, maybe a small thought on your mind in the morning, or perhaps a lovely memory on your mind before sleeping. I would only like to be a fleeting image before your eyes, perhaps a voice whispering in your ear, or a light brush against your lips.I would only like to be a person you want to have beside you, not during the entire day, but in one form or other, to live in you.”–Gabriela Mistral

“You shall create beauty not to excite the senses
but to give sustenance to the soul.” –Gabriela Mistral

“Love beauty, it is the shadow of God on the universe.” –Gabriela Mistral
