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.

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.
