Translation

(French, German)



French
La vie n'a pas de sens, a priori. Avant que vous ne viviez, la vie, elle, n'est rien, mais c'est à vous de lui donner un sens, et la valeur n'est pas autre chose que ce sens que vous choisissez.

German
Das Leben hat a priori keinen Sinn. Ehe Sie leben, ist das Leben nichts; es liegt an Ihnen, ihm einen Sinn zu verleihen, und der Wert ist nichts anderes als der Sinn, den Sie wählen.
