    Sie können keinen stolzen und ritterlichen Geist haben, wenn Ihr Verhalten gemein und armselig ist für was auch immer die Handlungen eines Mannes sind, so muss sein Geist sein.

    δεν μπορείς να έχεις περήφανο και ιπποτικό πνεύμα αν η συμπεριφορά σου είναι κακή και χαλαρή για ό, τι κι αν είναι οι ενέργειες ενός άνδρα, πρέπει να είναι το πνεύμα του.

    no puedes tener un espíritu orgulloso y caballeroso si tu conducta es mala y miserable por lo que sean las acciones de un hombre, tal debe ser su espíritu.

    如果您的举止卑鄙而微不足道,无论一个人的举止是什么,您都不会拥有一种骄傲而谦卑的精神,这必定是他的精神。
