    Duo tragoedias in vita sunt. ut non uno tibi petitiones cordis tui. ut quod est alterum.

    det finns två tragedier i livet. en är inte att få ditt hjärts önskan. den andra är att få det.

    జీవితంలో రెండు విషాదాలు ఉన్నాయి. ఒకటి మీ హృదయ కోరికను పొందడం కాదు. మరొకటి దాన్ని పొందడం.

    มีโศกนาฏกรรมสองอย่างในชีวิต หนึ่งคือไม่ได้รับความปรารถนาของหัวใจ อื่น ๆ คือการได้รับมัน

    hayatta iki trajedi var. biri kalbinizin arzusunu elde etmek değil. diğeri bunu elde etmektir.
