Latin translation:Qualis pater, talis filius
Explanation:
Qualis pater, talis filius: Tal padre, tal hijo. Sentencia que no siempre es exacta en la práctica. Tal es la forma de regular el adagio latino que algunos, apoyándose en Carlos Francisco Lhomond (1727-1794) escriben talis pater, talis filius, forma contraria al genio de la lengua latina. Denota esta sentencia, que por otra parte no siempre es exacta, que los hijos suelen tener los mismos defectos o cualidades de sus padres.
