    il vaut mieux être craint qu'aimé, si vous ne pouvez pas être les deux.

    प्यार से डरना बेहतर है, अगर आप दोनों नहीं हो सकते।

    lebih baik ditakuti daripada dicintai, jika Anda tidak bisa menjadi keduanya.

    è meglio temere che amare, se non si può essere entrambi.

    둘 다 될 수 없다면 사랑하는 것보다 두려워하는 것이 낫습니다.

    lepiej jest się bać niż kochać, jeśli nie możesz być jednym i drugim.

    Лучше бояться, чем любить, если вы не можете быть обоими.

    நீங்கள் இருவரும் இருக்க முடியாவிட்டால், நேசிப்பதை விட பயப்படுவது நல்லது.

    మీరు ఇద్దరూ ఉండకపోతే, ప్రియమైనవారి కంటే భయపడటం మంచిది.

    İkisi birden olamıyorsan, sevilmektense korkulmak daha iyidir.

    如果你不能兩者兼而有之,那麼害怕比被愛要好。
