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。

nec quisquam tibi potest docere possum tantum existiment.

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

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。
