Text in Hungarian to translate into English

Extract from 30/02, 2

All I have become, I have become in Hungary. My life has been given sense by Hungarian lives. Any mistakes I have made have been paid for here, in Hungary. Therefore, any good I might have achieved should benefit this country. That little I have been able to give the world should eventually return here.
