mi ne preĝu por esti ŝirmita kontraŭ danĝeroj sed por esti sentima antaŭ ili. mi ne petu la kvietiĝon de mia doloro, sed la koron venku ĝin.

no me dejes rezar para que me protejan de los peligros, sino para no tener miedo de enfrentarlos. déjame no rogar por la calma de mi dolor sino por el corazón para vencerlo.

मुझे खतरों से बचने की प्रार्थना न करें बल्कि उनका सामना करने में निडर रहें। मुझे अपने दर्द को दूर करने के लिए नहीं बल्कि दिल पर विजय पाने के लिए भीख माँगने दो।
