    nemo umquam argillam madens ac deinde reliquit, quasi fortuito ac fortuna lateres.

    niemand heeft ooit klei bevochtigd en het vervolgens achtergelaten, alsof er toevallig stenen zouden zijn.

    nenhum homem jamais molhou o barro e depois o deixou, como se houvesse tijolos por acaso e fortuna.

    ни один человек никогда не мочил глину, а потом оставлял ее, как будто по воле случая и фортуны будут кирпичи.

    ไม่มีใครเปียกดินแล้วทิ้งไว้ราวกับว่าจะมีก้อนอิฐโดยบังเอิญและโชคลาภ

    没有人曾经润湿粘土然后离开它,就好像偶然与运气一样会变成砖头。
