"Probable impossibilities are preferable to implausible probabilities."
from Aristotle's Poetics, translated by Malcolm Heath

What a fun sentence to say! If you were me, you would say that sentence aloud a few times to get a full appreciation of how entertaining it is to hear. I like all the 'p' and 'b' sounds.

Unfortunately, in terms of understanding the sentence, it is only comprehensible within the strict sense that Aristotle uses it addressing events of plot.I'm a bit vague as to what a "probable impossibility" is anyway. . .
