Not houses finely roofed or the stones of walls well builded, nay nor canals and dockyards make the city, but men able to use their opportunity.

δεν στεγάζονται σκεπασμένα σπίτια ή οι πέτρες των τοίχων είναι καλά κτισμένες, κανένας κανάλια και ναυπηγεία δεν κάνουν την πόλη, αλλά οι άνδρες μπορούν να χρησιμοποιήσουν την ευκαιρία τους.

non case finemente coperte o pietre di mura ben costruite, anzi né canali e cantieri rendono la città, ma uomini in grado di sfruttare la loro opportunità.
