    التسامح هو العطر الذي يلقيه البنفسج على الكعب الذي يسحقه.

    Vergebung ist der Duft, den das Veilchen auf die Ferse wirft, die es zerquetscht.

    συγχώρεση είναι το άρωμα που ρίχνει η βιολέτα στη φτέρνα που τη συνθλίβει.

    pardono estas la bonodoro, kiun la violo ĵetas sur la kalkanon, kiu disbatas ĝin.

    El perdón es la fragancia que la violeta derrama sobre el talón que la aplasta.

    le pardon est le parfum que la violette répand sur le talon qui l'écrase.

    il perdono è la fragranza che la viola sparge sul tallone che la schiaccia.
