Message:
A few years ago I was in Sao Paulo and noticed the following inscribed on a building (museum?)near Ibirapuera Park: "Viveram Pouco para morrer bem - Morreram jovens para viver siempre"

If anyone can translate the words (I have a rough idea of what they say, but not what they MEAN)and tell me who said them (if it is in fact a quote), and anything about what historical event they refer to and the name of the building, it would be most helpful.

Thanks,
Frank

Hi! The quote means "Lived short to Die Well-Died Well to Live Forever". I don´t know if you understand the meaning of this sentence, but it refers to 1932 Sao Paulo State Rebellion.
In 1932 Sao Paulo State was governed by a governor imposed by the central government in Rio de Janeiro and the paulistas (people from Sao Paulo) decided to break with the central government and start a military movement against the central government. This movement ended in a 3 month civil war and Sao Paulo resents it until today. You can found more about this civil war searching for "Revolução Constitucionalista de 1932"
