    Tatsachen sind hartnäckige Dinge; und was auch immer unsere Wünsche, unsere Neigungen oder das Diktat unserer Leidenschaften sein mögen, sie können den Zustand der Tatsachen und Beweise nicht ändern.

    los hechos son tercos; y cualesquiera que sean nuestros deseos, nuestras inclinaciones o los dictados de nuestras pasiones, no pueden alterar el estado de los hechos y las pruebas.

    i fatti sono cose ostinate; e qualunque siano i nostri desideri, le nostre inclinazioni oi dettami delle nostre passioni, non possono alterare lo stato dei fatti e delle prove.

    contumaces rerum rerum et quidquid votis nostris voluntatibus et in pravitate passionum, quod non conceditur innovare civitatem.
