French
J'appris ceci, au moins, de par mon expérience : si quelqu'un avance avec confiance dans la direction de ses rêves, et essaie de vivre la vie qu'il a imaginée, il trouvera des succès inattendus en des moments ordinaires.

German
Das eine wenigstens lernte ich bei meinem Experimente: Wenn jemand vertrauensvoll in der Richtung seiner Träume vorwärts schreitet und danach strebt, das Leben, das er sich einbildete, zu leben, so wird er Erfolge haben, von denen er sich in gewöhnlichen Stunden nichts träumen ließ.
