    siegreiche Krieger gewinnen zuerst und ziehen dann in den Krieg, während besiegte Krieger zuerst in den Krieg ziehen und dann versuchen zu gewinnen.

    los guerreros victoriosos ganan primero y luego van a la guerra, mientras que los guerreros derrotados van primero a la guerra y luego buscan ganar.

    les guerriers victorieux gagnent d'abord puis partent en guerre, tandis que les guerriers vaincus partent d'abord en guerre puis cherchent à gagner.

    i guerrieri vittoriosi vincono prima e poi vanno in guerra, mentre i guerrieri sconfitti vanno prima in guerra e poi cercano di vincere.

    vincere bello victor, tum bello et fortium superatus bello primum captare.

    победившие воины побеждают первыми, а затем идут на войну, в то время как побежденные воины сначала идут на войну, а затем стремятся победить.

    فاتح جنگجو پہلے جیت جاتے ہیں اور پھر جنگ میں جاتے ہیں ، جبکہ شکست خوردہ جنگجو پہلے جنگ میں جاتے ہیں پھر جیتنے کی کوشش کرتے ہیں۔
