    za talentem leží všechna obvyklá slova: disciplína, láska, štěstí -- ale především vytrvalost.

    Jenseits von Talent liegen alle üblichen Worte: Disziplin, Liebe, Glück – aber vor allem Ausdauer.

    más allá del talento se encuentran todas las palabras habituales: disciplina, amor, suerte, pero, sobre todo, resistencia.

    au-delà du talent se trouvent tous les mots habituels : discipline, amour, chance, mais surtout endurance.

    प्रतिभा से परे सभी सामान्य शब्द झूठ बोलते हैं: अनुशासन, प्रेम, भाग्य - लेकिन, सबसे बढ़कर, धीरज।

    מעבר לכישרון טמונות כל המילים הרגילות: משמעת, אהבה, מזל - אבל, יותר מכל, סיבולת.

    திறமைக்கு அப்பாற்பட்ட அனைத்து வழக்கமான வார்த்தைகளும்: ஒழுக்கம், அன்பு, அதிர்ஷ்டம் - ஆனால், பெரும்பாலானவை, சகிப்புத்தன்மை.
