Quick translation for Native Speakers of all languages

Hey guys. Just wondered if y'all could spare a minute for a mini project for my brother. I'm looking for translations of the following into as many languages as possible:

I was wise once - I cried when I was born.
They call you "generous" and make you lose your property, they call you "brave" and make you lose your life
(from the Turkish proverb Cömert der maldan ederler, yiğit der candan ederler)

Thanks so much!! :)
