1012 – “Mas, sea verdad o sueño, obrar bien es lo que importa. Si fuere verdad, por serlo; si no, por ganar amigos para cuando despertemos.”

“But whether it be truth or dream, to do well is what matters. If it be truth, for truth’s sake. If not, then to gain friends for when we awaken.”

-Segismundo in Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s play La vida es sueño
