tenez bon aux rêves car si les rêves meurent, la vie est un oiseau ailé cassé qui ne peut pas voler.

यदि सपने मर जाते हैं, तो सपनों के लिए तेजी से पकड़, जीवन एक टूटी हुई पंखों वाला पक्षी है जो उड़ नहीं सकता है।

mantenha-se firme nos sonhos, pois se os sonhos morrem, a vida é um pássaro alado quebrado que não pode voar.

خوابوں کو مرنے کے لئے خوابوں کو تیز رکھو، زندگی ایک ٹوٹے ہوئے پنکھ پرندوں ہے جو پرواز نہیں کرسکتی ہے.
