    "el que busca encuentra" es una frase común en castellano, quisiera saber si en inglés lo dicen de alguna manera en particular. Gracias!

    He who seeks finds, I should have omitted the shall.

    This is common because it is understood from the Bible passage.
    Seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you, so even theBible illiterate accept it as a common saying that he who seeks, finds.

    el traductor online traduce mejor ésta manera: "He who seeks finds"
    En cambio "Seek and ye shall find" lo traduce Buscad y hallaréis
