Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    más que amor, que dinero, que fama, dame la verdad. Me senté a una mesa donde había abundancia de comida y vino, y una asistencia servil, pero la sinceridad y la verdad no; y me fui hambriento del inhóspito tablero.

    geef mij liever de waarheid dan liefde dan geld dan roem. ik zat aan een tafel waar rijkelijk voedsel en wijn in overvloed was, en onderdanige aanwezigheid, maar oprechtheid en waarheid waren dat niet; en ik ging hongerig weg van het onherbergzame bord.
