    سفينة في الميناء آمنة ، ولكن هذا ليس ما يتم بناؤه من أجل السفن.

    Ein Schiff im Hafen ist sicher, aber dafür sind Schiffe nicht gebaut.

    un barco en el puerto es seguro, pero no es para eso que están construidos los barcos.

    un navire dans le port est sûr, mais ce n'est pas pour cela que les navires sont construits.

    ספינה בנמל היא בטוחה, אך לא לשם כך בנויים ספינות.

    నౌకాశ్రయంలోని ఓడ సురక్షితం, కానీ ఓడలు నిర్మించబడవు.
