    koulutus on väärien helmien heittäminen ennen oikeita sikoja.

    is é an t-oideachas an próiseas chun péarlaí bréagacha a chaitheamh roimh fhíor-mhuc.

    शिक्षा असली सूअर से पहले झूठे मोती डालने की प्रक्रिया है।

    l'educazione è il processo di lancio di perle finte prima dei veri maiali.
