خود را محتوا کنید تا مبهم خوب باشد. هنگامی که نایب غالب می شود ، و مردان نجیب متضرر می شوند ، پست افتخار یک ایستگاه خصوصی است.

당신 자신이 모호하게 좋은 것으로 만족하십시오. 악이 우세하고 악의적 인 사람들이 흔들리면 명예의 전당은 사유 소입니다.

довольствуйся тем, чтобы быть непонятно хорошим когда преобладает порок и господствуют нечестивые люди, почетный пост - это частный пост.
