Fratres, nescitis quod ii qui in stadio currunt omnes quidem currunt sed unus accipit bravium? Sic currite ut comprehendatis.
(I Cor 9,24)

Brethren, know you not that they that run in the race, all run indeed, but one receiveth the prize? So run that you may obtain.

Testvérek, nem tudjátok, hogy akik a versenypályán futnak, mindnyájan futnak ugyan, de csak egy nyeri el a jutalmat? Úgy fussatok, hogy elnyerjétek.
