Hello,

How would I say in German:


"I want to prove that whoever acts rightly and nobly, can by that alone bear misfortune."

"Ich will beweisen, dass wer sich richtig verhält und edel, kann damit allein Unglück ertragen. "

is this right?

    "Ich will beweisen, dass wer sich richtig verhält und edel, kann damit allein Unglück ertragen. "
    Hello
    After subordinating conjunctions or pronouns the verb is normally positioned at the end of the clause, and therefore your sentence should be modified as follows:
    Ich will beweisen, dass wer sich richtig und edel verhält, damit allein Unglück ertragen kann ('kann' is still depending on 'dass').
    However, there are better wordings and idiomatic formulations that can express the same content, and I'm confident that German native speakers will suggest them.
