ونحن ما نقوم به مرارا وتكرارا. التميز ، إذن ، ليس عملاً ، بل عادة.

wir sind, was wir wiederholt tun. Exzellenz ist also keine Tat, sondern eine Gewohnheit.

είμαστε αυτό που επαναλαμβανομένα κάνουμε. η αριστεία, λοιπόν, δεν είναι πράξη, αλλά συνήθεια.

somos lo que hacemos repetidamente. La excelencia, entonces, no es un acto sino un hábito.

nous sommes ce que nous faisons à plusieurs reprises. l'excellence n'est donc pas un acte, mais une habitude.

우리는 우리가 반복해서하는 일입니다. 우수성은 행위가 아니라 습관입니다.

jesteśmy tym, co robimy wielokrotnie. doskonałość nie jest więc aktem, ale nawykiem.
