Need Help Finding a Quote (Spoiler Alert!)
Need some help again. I’ve been googling, yahoo-ing, and bing-ing, but I just cannot find this quote that is used in Bartender.
“Instead of saying three ugly truths, it’s better to say a beautiful lie” <- something like that
It’s a quote by Francois Rabelais, but I cannot find the exact English translation anywhere. I’m not sure if this is a quote from a work of his or maybe he just said this somewhere, but in Bartender, the author claims that Rabelais said this yet I cannot find anything similar anywhere.
I really really want to get a good translation for this, so if anyone can find out what the exact quote is, please let me know!!
I’ve spent a couple of hours searching for this quote in English, Chinese, and Japanese, and I came up with nothing. I’m just going to translate it myself and note that I couldn’t find this quote anywhere and that the author probably made it all up.
Thanks everyone for all your efforts. I hope there won’t be any other instances where this author just makes stuff up. But who knows…
END SPOILER ALERT!!
