    Es gibt tatsächlich zwei Dinge, Wissenschaft und Meinung, die erstere erzeugt Wissen, die letztere Unwissenheit.

    Υπάρχουν στην πραγματικότητα δύο πράγματα, η επιστήμη και η γνώμη που η πρώτη δημιουργεί γνώση, η τελευταία άγνοια.

    वास्तव में दो चीजें हैं, विज्ञान और मत से पहले ज्ञान प्राप्त होता है, दूसरा अज्ञान।

    Nam duo sunt scientia et opinio prius gignit, alterum ignorantia.

    w rzeczywistości istnieją dwie rzeczy: nauka i opinia, pierwsza rodzi wiedzę, druga ignorancja.

    உண்மையில் இரண்டு விஷயங்கள் உள்ளன, விஞ்ஞானம் மற்றும் கருத்து முந்தைய அறிவைப் பெறுகிறது, பிந்தைய அறியாமை.

    thực tế có hai thứ, khoa học và ý kiến, cái trước mang lại kiến thức, cái sau là sự ngu dốt.
