Ladin

Ad hoc version by Ingrid Runggaldier in 'Grödner Ladinisch' (the Ladin of Val Gardena, or Gherdëina):

Sce a vertù ne mancia belëza
ne tacëde vosc jënder no de burtëza.

translated by her into German:

Wenn der Tugend Schönheit nicht fehlt,
sagt nicht, dass euer Schwiegersohn hässlich sei.

and from that to English (TC):

if virtue does not lack beauty,
do not say that your son-in-law is ugly.
