    Das Leben wird nicht an der Anzahl der Atemzüge gemessen, die wir machen, sondern an den Momenten, die uns den Atem rauben.

    La vida no se mide por la cantidad de respiraciones que tomamos, sino por los momentos que nos quitan la respiración.

    la vie ne se mesure pas au nombre de respirations que nous prenons, mais aux moments qui nous coupent le souffle.

    החיים לא נמדדים לפי מספר הנשימות שאנו לוקחים, אלא לפי הרגעים שמונקים את נשימתנו.

    인생은 우리가 숨을 쉬는 횟수가 아니라 숨을 쉬는 순간에 의해 측정됩니다.

    życie nie jest mierzone liczbą oddechów, które bierzemy, ale chwilami, które zapierają nam dech w piersiach.

    a vida não é medida pelo número de respirações que tomamos, mas pelos momentos que nos tiram o fôlego.

    жизнь измеряется не количеством вдохов, которые мы делаем, но моментами, которые у нас отнимают.
