If a man withdraws his mind from the love of beauty, and applies it as sincerely to the love of the virtuous if, in serving his parents, he can exert his utmost strength if, in serving his prince, he can devote his life if in his intercourse with his friends, his words are sincere - although men say that he has not learned, I will certainly say that he has.

    Si un hombre aparta su mente del amor por la belleza y lo aplica con tanta sinceridad al amor de los virtuosos, si, al servir a sus padres, puede ejercer toda su fuerza si, al servir a su príncipe, puede dedicar su vida si en sus relaciones con sus amigos, sus palabras son sinceras - aunque los hombres dicen que no ha aprendido, ciertamente diré que sí.

    만약 남자가 아름다움에 대한 사랑에서 마음을 빼앗아 덕이있는 자의 사랑에 진지하게 적용한다면, 만약 그의 부모를 섬기면서 왕자를 섬기는 데에 자신의 삶을 바칠 수 있다면 최선의 힘을 발휘할 수 있다면 그의 친구들과의 성관계, 그의 말은 진실합니다. 남자들은 그가 배운 적이 없다고 말하지만, 나는 그가 배웠다고 확실히 말할 것입니다.

    如果一个人从对美的热爱中撤出了自己的思想,并将其真诚地应用到对贤惠的热爱中,如果在为父母服务时可以发挥最大的力量,而在为王子服务时可以奉献自己的生活,他与朋友的交往,他的话是真诚的-尽管人们说他没有学到,但我肯定会说他有。
