Nothing amuses me more than the easy manner with which everybody settles the abundance of those who have a great deal less than themselves.

Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

    nada me divierte más que la manera fácil con que todo el mundo liquida la abundancia de los que tienen mucho menos que ellos mismos.

    niente mi diverte più del modo facile con cui ognuno regola l'abbondanza di coloro che hanno molto meno di loro stessi.

    שום דבר לא משעשע אותי יותר מהאופן הקל שבו כולם מיישבים את השפע של מי שיש להם הרבה פחות מעצמם.

    ничто не забавляет меня больше, чем легкость, с которой каждый довольствуется изобилием тех, у кого намного меньше, чем у них самих.

    Hiçbir şey beni, herkesin kendisinden çok daha azına sahip olanların bolluğuna yerleştiği kolay tavırdan daha fazla eğlendiremez.

    مجھے اس آسان طریقے سے زیادہ خوشی نہیں ہے جس کی مدد سے ہر کوئی ان لوگوں کی کثرت کو آباد کرتا ہے جن کے پاس خود سے کم سودا ہے۔

    沒有什麼比讓所有人解決比自己少很多的人的豐富方式變得輕鬆有趣的了。
