Always convinced that God is more powerful than nature, Cortés does not hesitate to join the natives and to commit to war: in other words, to catapult himself into the heart of the action. Nearly three centuries later, Pedro Sarmiento will also act, react, and gain confidence with the certitude that God is more powerful than nature, this time in the form of audaces fortuna juvat, timidosque repellit (2: 512) and Deus providebit (2: 513).
