Glory is like a circle in the water, Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself, Till by broad spreading it disperses to naught.


William Shakespeare

1564-1616 was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 37 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

    فالمجد مثل دائرة في الماء ، لا تتوقف عن التوسيع ، حتى تتشتت من الصفر.

    Herrlichkeit ist wie ein Kreis im Wasser, der sich nie zu vergrößern aufhört, bis er sich durch breite Ausbreitung in Nichts auflöst.

    η δόξα είναι σαν ένας κύκλος στο νερό, ο οποίος δεν σταματά ποτέ να μεγαλώνει, έως ότου διαδοθεί ευρέως διασκορπίζεται στο μηδέν.

    la gloria es como un círculo en el agua, que nunca cesa de agrandarse, hasta que al esparcirse se dispersa hasta la nada.

    la gloire est comme un cercle dans l’eau, qui ne cesse de s’élargir, jusqu’à ce qu’elle s’étende en se dispersant.

    महिमा पानी में एक चक्र की तरह है, जो कभी भी अपने आप को बड़ा करने के लिए कभी नहीं करता है, जब तक कि व्यापक प्रसार द्वारा यह शून्य तक फैल जाता है।

    kemuliaan seperti lingkaran di dalam air, yang tidak pernah berhenti untuk memperbesar dirinya sendiri, sampai dengan penyebarannya yang luas itu sia-sia.

    la gloria è come un cerchio nell'acqua, che non cessa mai di ingrandirsi, finché allargandosi non si disperde nel nulla.


    gloria circuli in aqua se dilatare nec quievit donec discussa latis patentes sunt.

    a glória é como um círculo na água, que nunca cessa de se alargar, até que, por ampla expansão, se desfaça em nada.

    слава подобна кругу в воде, который никогда не перестает расширяться, пока широким распространением не рассеется до нуля.
