    Goya " Los Caprichos "


    Spanish: Al Conde Palatino 

    English: To the Count Palatine 

    In all sciences there are people who know everything without 

    Having learned and have a ready remedy for all ills.

    One can't believe what they say.

    The really intelligent person mistrusts them. 

    The educated person makes moderate promises and keeps much in reserve.

    The Count Palatine never keeps any promisses at all.

     Goya " The Capriccios "


    Spanish: Por que fue sensible 

    English: She Was So Easily Influenced

    This was to be expected. The world has its ups and downs 

    and the life she led has no other end.

    Goya Los Caprichos 

    Spanish: Ruega por ella 

    English: She Prays for Her 

    And she did well to do so ... that God may give her luck, keep her from harm, moneylenders, and cops ...

    Make her skilful and carefull, wide-awake, and ready as her sainted mother.

    Goya Capriccios 

    Spanish: Porque Esconderlos?

    English: Why Hide the Money?

    The answer is easy. He won't spend it; He doesn't spend it;  

    he can't spend it. Although he is over eighty and as barely another month to live,

    he is afraid that he might have no more left if he lives longer.

    Such are the mistakes of Greed.
