Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

impossible est juste un gros mot lancé par de petits hommes qui trouvent plus facile de vivre dans le monde qui leur a été donné que d'explorer le pouvoir dont ils disposent pour le changer. Impossible n'est pas un fait. c'est une opinion. impossible n'est pas une déclaration. c'est un défi. impossible est potentiel. impossible est temporaire. Rien n'est impossible.

impossibile è solo una grande parola lanciata da piccoli uomini che trovano più facile vivere nel mondo che hanno ricevuto piuttosto che esplorare il potere che hanno di cambiarlo. Impossibile non è un dato di fatto. è un'opinione. Impossibile non è una dichiarazione. è una sfida. impossibile è potenziale. impossibile è temporaneo. niente è impossibile.

umulig er bare et stort ord kastet rundt av små menn som synes det er lettere å leve i verden de har fått, enn å utforske kraften de har til å endre den. umulig er ikke et faktum. det er en mening. umulig er ikke en erklæring. det er en tør. umulig er potensial. umulig er midlertidig. umulig er ingenting.
