(French, German)



French
On ne peut être vraiment soi qu'aussi longtemps qu'on est seul ; qui n'aime donc pas la solitude n'aime pas la liberté, car on n'est libre qu'étant seul.

German
Ganz er selbst sein darf jeder nur so lange er allein ist: wer also nicht die Einsamkeit liebt, der liebt auch nicht die Freiheit: denn nur wenn man allein ist, ist man frei.
