    bono kaj malbono, rekompenco kaj puno, estas la solaj motivoj al racia kreitaĵo: jen la sprono kaj kondukiloj, per kiuj la tuta homo laboras kaj gvidas.

    le bien et le mal, la récompense et la punition, sont les seuls motifs d'une créature rationnelle: ce sont l'impulsion et les rênes par lesquelles toute l'humanité est mise au travail et guidée.

    अच्छाई और बुराई, इनाम और सजा, एक तर्कसंगत प्राणी के लिए एकमात्र उद्देश्य हैं: ये प्रेरणा और बागडोर हैं, जिसके तहत सभी मानव जाति को काम पर रखा जाता है, और निर्देशित किया जाता है।

    善与恶,奖赏与惩罚是一个理性生物的唯一动机:这是促使全人类从事工作并得到指导的鞭策。
