    não temos mais direito de consumir felicidade sem produzi-la do que consumir riqueza sem produzi-la.

    мы не имеем больше права потреблять счастье, не производя его, чем потреблять богатство, не производя его.

    üretmeden mutluluğu tüketmeye hakkımız yok, üretmeden zenginlik tüketmekten daha fazla.
