There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.

    il se peut qu'il y ait un grand feu dans notre âme, mais personne ne vient jamais s'y réchauffer, et les passants ne voient qu'un filet de fumée.

    er mag dan wel een groot vuur in onze ziel zijn, toch komt niemand zich er ooit voor warmen, en de voorbijgangers zien slechts een rookwolkje.

    ruhumuzda büyük bir ateş olabilir, ama kimse ona ısınmaya gelmez ve yoldan geçenler sadece bir tutam duman görür.

    ہو سکتا ہے کہ ہماری روح میں آگ بھڑک رہی ہو، پھر بھی کوئی اس کو گرمانے کے لیے نہیں آتا، اور راہگیروں کو صرف دھواں ہی نظر آتا ہے۔

    có thể có một ngọn lửa lớn trong tâm hồn chúng ta, nhưng không ai có thể tự sưởi ấm cho nó, và những người qua đường chỉ nhìn thấy một làn khói.
