    नश्वर लोगों के साहस के लिए कुछ भी अधिक नहीं है: हम स्वर्ग को अपने मूर्खता में ही उड़ाते हैं।

    niente è troppo alto per l'audacia dei mortali: prendiamo d'assalto il paradiso stesso nella nostra follia.

    ಮನುಷ್ಯರ ಧೈರ್ಯಶಾಲಿಗಾಗಿ ಏನೂ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿಲ್ಲ: ನಾವು ನಮ್ಮ ಮೂರ್ಖತನದಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ವರ್ಗವನ್ನು ಹೊಡೆಯುತ್ತೇವೆ.

    انسانوں کی ہمت کرنے کے لئے کچھ زیادہ نہیں ہے: ہم اپنی حماقت میں ہی جنت کو طوفان سے دوچار کرتے ہیں۔
