    Ich lehne Gewalt ab, denn wenn es Gutes zu tun scheint, ist das Gute nur vorübergehend. Das Böse, das es tut, ist dauerhaft.

    Me opongo a la violencia porque cuando parece hacer el bien, el bien es solo temporal; El mal que hace es permanente.

    ik heb bezwaar tegen geweld omdat wanneer het goed lijkt te doen, het goede slechts tijdelijk is; het kwaad dat het doet is permanent.

    Eu me oponho à violência porque quando ela parece fazer o bem, o bem é apenas temporário; o mal que faz é permanente.

    я возражаю против насилия, потому что когда оно, кажется, приносит пользу, добро является лишь временным; зло, которое оно делает, постоянно.

    Şiddete itiraz ediyorum çünkü iyilik yapıyor gibi göründüğünde, iyilik sadece geçicidir; yaptığı kötülük kalıcıdır.

    مجھے تشدد پر اعتراض ہے کیونکہ جب یہ اچھ doا ہوتا ہے تو اچھ onlyا ہی عارضی ہوتا ہے۔ جو برا کام کرتا ہے وہ مستقل ہے۔

    我反对暴力,因为当它看起来行善时,好处只是暂时的;它所做的邪恶是永久性的。

    我反對暴力,因為當它看起來行善時,好處只是暫時的;它所做的邪惡是永久性的。
