senryu – if your love is you = si tu es l'amour = se l'amore sei tu




New Testament:
Corinthians 1.13.2: If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom
all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have faith to move
mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.


if your love is you
do you know who you are?
all the universe

français :

si tu es l'amour
sais-tu qui tu es ?
tout l'univers

italiano:

se l'amore sei tu
sai chi sei?
l'universo

español:

si el amor eres tu
¿sabes quién eres?
el universo

Deutsch:

wenn du die Liebe bist
Weißt du wer du bist?
das Weltall

Romanian:

daca iubirea esti tu
stii cine esti?
universul

Latin:

si es amor 
scis qui sit?
universum

Hittite

takku essi asiur
sak kuis essi?
dapes hasteres

literally:  

if you are love
do you know who you are?
all the stars

Hittite, the earliest Indo-European language, was so ancient (ca. 3,500 BCE) that it had no word for “universe”, which makes perfect sense. I am learning Hittite. I started a month ago, and I am learning fast. Unlike most adults, who claim learning a foreign language is hard, I learn languages like a child. Even if you cannot understand the words, if you speak or read Italian, pronounce Hittite the same way, like this:

se l'amore sei tu
sai chi sei?
l'universo
