    الخير الوحيد هو العلم والشر الوحيد هو الجهل.

    το μόνο καλό είναι η γνώση και το μόνο κακό είναι η άγνοια.

    lo único bueno es el conocimiento y lo único malo es la ignorancia.

    le seul bien est la connaissance et le seul mal est l'ignorance.

    एकमात्र अच्छा ज्ञान है और एकमात्र बुराई अज्ञानता है।

    유일한 선은 지식이고 유일한 악은 무지입니다.

    ignoratio scientiae boni et mali non solum.

    jedynym dobrem jest wiedza, a jedynym złem jest ignorancja.

    единственное добро - это знание, а единственное зло - невежество.
