To live is modern man’s only value.
Even the modern hero does not die except in the name of life.

  1. It's great to see you're translating these aphorisms. I had debated doing it myself once, but worried about possible repercussions.

    Vivir es el único valor del moderno.
    Aún el héroe moderno no muere sino en nombre de la vida.
