French
Celui qui un jour veut apprendre à voler, celui-là doit d'abord apprendre à se tenir debout et à marcher et à courir, à grimper et à danser - ce n'est pas du premier coup d'aile que l'on conquiert l’envol!

German
Wer einst fliegen lernen will, der muss erst stehn und gehn und laufen und klettern und tanzen lernen: – man erfliegt das Fliegen nicht!

The higher we rise, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do – you have to keep moving forward.
