We only know how to carry ourselves with decency in front of the world when we know that we are owed nothing.
Without the pained grimace of a frustrated creditor.

    Sólo sabemos portarnos con decencia frente al mundo cuando sabemos que nada se nos debe.
    Sin mueca dolorida de acreedor frustrado.
