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.



(French, German, Spanish, Italian)

Si tu ne peux pas voler, alors cours. Si tu ne peux pas courir, alors marche. Si tu ne peux pas marcher, alors rampe, mais quoi que tu fasses, tu dois continuer à avancer.

Wenn Du nicht fliegen kannst renne, wenn Du nicht rennen kannst gehe, wenn Du nicht gehen kannst krabble, aber was auch immer Du tust, Du musst weitermachen.

Si no puedes volar entonces corre, si no puedes correr entonces camina, si no puedes caminar entonces arrástrate, pero hagas que hagas, sigue moviéndote hacia adelante.

Se non puoi volare, allora corri, se non puoi correre, allora cammina, se non puoi camminare, allora gattona, ma qualsiasi cosa fai, devi continuare ad andare avanti.
