Anatole France

Anatole France (16 April 1844 – 12 October 1924), born Jacques Anatole François Thibault, was a French poet, journalist, and novelist. Ironic and skeptical, he was considered in his day the ideal French man of letters. A member of the Académie française, he won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Literature in recognition of his literary achievements. He is widely believed to be the model for the narrator's literary idol "Bergotte" in Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time.

si cincuenta millones de personas dicen una tontería, todavía es una tontería.

اگر پنجاه میلیون نفر یک چیز احمقانه بگویند ، این هنوز یک چیز احمقانه است.

si cinquante millions de personnes disent une chose stupide, c'est toujours une chose stupide.

אם חמישים מיליון בני אדם אומרים דבר מטופש, זה עדיין דבר מטופש.
