jos ajattelet vuoden aikana, istuta siemeniä; jos kymmenen vuoden aikana istutetaan puita; jos opetat ihmisiä 100 vuoden ajan.

si vous pensez en termes d'une année, plantez une graine; si en termes de dix ans, planter des arbres; si en termes de 100 ans, enseignez aux gens.

se pensi in termini di un anno, pianta un seme; se in termini di dieci anni, pianta alberi; se in termini di 100 anni, insegnare alla gente.

dacă gândiți în termen de un an, plantați o sămânță; dacă în termen de zece ani, pomi de plante; dacă în termen de 100 de ani, învață poporul.

如果你想一年,种一颗种子;如果是十年,植物树木;如果在100年的时间里,教导人民。

如果你想一年,種一顆種子;如果是十年,植物樹木;如果在100年的時間裡,教導人民。
