يمكن لأي أحمق ذكي أن يجعل الأمور أكبر وأكثر تعقيدًا ... ويستلزم الأمر عبقرية - والكثير من الشجاعة - للتحرك في الاتجاه المعاكس.

Jeder intelligente Dummkopf kann die Dinge größer und komplexer machen. Es erfordert einen Hauch von Genie - und viel Mut -, sich in die entgegengesetzte Richtung zu bewegen.

cualquier tonto inteligente puede hacer las cosas más grandes y más complejas ... se necesita un toque de genio, y mucho coraje, para moverse en la dirección opuesta.

qualsiasi pazzo intelligente può rendere le cose più grandi e complesse ... ci vuole un tocco di genialità - e molto coraggio - per muoversi nella direzione opposta.

quis sapiens et stultus complexu rerum ... maior accipiat tactu genius - multum animi - in contrarium moveri.

любой умный дурак может делать вещи больше и сложнее ... требуется немного гения - и много мужества - чтобы двигаться в противоположном направлении.

任何聪明的傻瓜都可以使事情变得更大,更复杂……朝着相反的方向前进需要一点天才和极大的勇气。
