“A firm belief attracts facts. They come out of holes in the ground and cracks in the wall to support belief, but they run away from doubt.”

— Finley Peter Dunne, Humorist

「一個堅定的信念會吸引事實。它們會從地上的坑洞及牆上的裂痕出來支持信念,但它們逃離不確定。」– 法利‧德昂 (幽默作家)

  • firm (adj.) 堅定的,堅決的。doubt (n.) 懷疑,不確定。例:I have no doubt that we will make this project a success. (我深信我們將讓這個專案成功。) fact (n.) 事實,真相。這裡把 fact 擬人化,假設它會 come out 及 run away。
