Citations sur : est

Il ne sert à rien de discuter contre l'inévitable. Le seul argument contre le vent de l'Est, c'est de mettre son manteau.

En anglais : "There is no good in arguing with the inevitable. The only argument available with an east wind is to put on your overcoat. And in this case, also, the prudent will prepare themselves to encounter what they cannot prevent. Some people advise us to put on the brakes, as if the movement of which we are conscious were that of a railway train running down an incline. But a metaphor is no argument, though it be sometimes the gunpowder to drive one home and imbed it in the memory."
