    estos no son libros, trozos de papel sin vida, sino mentes vivas en los estantes.

    ce ne sont pas des livres, des morceaux de papier sans vie, mais des esprits vivants sur les étagères.

    ये किताबें नहीं हैं, बेजान कागज की गांठें हैं, लेकिन अलमारियों पर जिंदा दिमाग हैं।

    これらは本や活気のない紙の塊ではなく、棚に生きている心です。

    to nie są książki, kawałki martwego papieru, ale umysły żywe na półkach.

    这些不是书,不是一堆死气沉沉的纸,而是头脑活跃在架子上。
