    los hombres juzgan generalmente más con los ojos que con la mano, porque todos pueden ver y pocos pueden sentir. todos ven lo que aparentas ser, pocos saben realmente lo que eres.

    les hommes jugent généralement plus par l'œil que par la main, car tout le monde peut voir et peu peuvent sentir. tout le monde voit ce que vous semblez être, peu savent vraiment ce que vous êtes.

    menn dømmer generelt mer etter øye enn etter hånd, for alle kan se og få kan føle. hver og en ser hva du ser ut til å være, få vet egentlig hva du er.
