French
Depuis que je suis fatigué de chercher
J’ai appris à trouver.
Depuis qu’un vent s’est opposé à moi
Je navigue avec tous les vents.


German
Seit ich des Suchens müde ward,
Erlernte ich das Finden.
Seit mir ein Wind hielt Widerpart,
Segl’ ich mit allen Winden.

I do not seek, I find.

Destiny beats the cards but we will play them.

Beware of spitting against the wind!

Meet the time as it seeks us.

Fate shuffles the cards and we play.

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

We don't choose the things that happen to us, but we can choose how we react to them.
