    las grandes mentes tienen propósitos, otras tienen deseos. las pequeñas mentes están domesticadas y sometidas por la desgracia; pero grandes mentes se elevan por encima de ellos.

    tâm trí vĩ đại có mục đích, người khác có ước muốn. tâm trí nhỏ bé được thuần hóa và khuất phục bởi bất hạnh; nhưng những bộ óc vĩ đại vượt lên trên họ.
