    Das Leben ist wie ein Abwasserkanal ... was man daraus macht, hängt davon ab, was man hineinsteckt.

    la vie est comme un égout ... ce que vous en retirez dépend de ce que vous y mettez.

    az élet olyan, mint egy csatorna ... hogy mit hozol ki belőle, attól függ, hogy mit adsz bele.

    زندگی گٹر کی طرح ہے ... جس چیز سے آپ نکلیں گے اس کا انحصار اس بات پر ہے کہ آپ نے اس میں کیا ڈال دیا ہے۔

    生活就像下水道...从中获得的收益取决于放入其中的东西。
