    Ich kann niemandem etwas beibringen, ich kann sie nur zum Nachdenken bringen.

    Δεν μπορώ να διδάξω τίποτα τίποτα, μπορώ μόνο να τους κάνει να σκέφτονται.

    No puedo enseñarle nada a nadie, solo puedo hacer que piensen.

    Je ne peux rien enseigner à personne, je ne peux que leur faire réfléchir.

    Ես չեմ կարող որևէ մեկին որևէ բան սովորեցնել, միայն կարող եմ ստիպել նրանց մտածել:

    私は誰にも教えることはできません、私は彼らに考えさせることしかできません。

    나는 아무에게도 가르 칠 수 없으며, 생각 만 할 수 있습니다.

    nec quisquam tibi potest docere possum tantum existiment.

    jeg kan ikke lære noen ting, jeg kan bare få dem til å tenke.

    నేను ఎవరికీ ఏమీ నేర్పించలేను, నేను వారిని ఆలోచించగలను.

    kimseye bir şey öğretemem, sadece düşünmelerini sağlayabilirim.

    я нікого не можу навчити, я можу лише змусити їх думати.

    میں کسی کو کچھ بھی نہیں سکھا سکتا، میں صرف ان کو سوچ سکتا ہوں.

    我不能教任何人,我只能让他们思考。

    我不能教任何人,我只能讓他們思考。
