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.

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

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.

栄光は水の中の円のようなものであり、それ自体が拡大し続けることはありません。

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