There is a tide in the affairs of men Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

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.

miehen asioissa on vuorovesi, joka otettiin tulvaan, johtaa onnettomuuteen, kaikki heidän elämänsä matka on sidottu mataliin ja kärsimyksiin.

il y a une marée dans les affaires des hommes qui, emportées par le déluge, mènent à la fortune omise, tout le voyage de leur vie est lié aux hauts-fonds et aux misères.

в делах людей, которые берутся во время потопа, течет волна, а удача опущена, все путешествие их жизни связано на мелководье и в страданиях.

在洪水泛滥的人类事务中,有一种潮流,导致了财富的流失,他们一生的所有旅途都陷入了困境。
