Short life – Breve vida


 
How short our span!
If you once realize how brief,
You would refrain
from causing any beast or man
the smallest grief, the slightest pain.

—Angelus Silesius

 

……………………………………………………….

!Cuan corta nuestra vida! Si vieses lo breve que es

Te abstendrías de causar a bestia u hombre

el menor dolor, el menor daño.

–Angelus Silesius
