Below is the transcription of the text in the painting

Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn a man against his father,  a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. Mt: 10, 34-35. Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. Mk: 13,12. I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. Lk: 12,4. No one takes power with the intention of letting it go; it is not a means, but an end in itself. A dictatorship is not established with the purpose of safeguarding a revolution; the revolution is made to establish the dictatorship. However, revolutions generally devour their leaders first. George Orwell, Animal farm.
