Powerful Forces

Anatole France (1844-1924), Thaïs, part III (L'Euphorbe, tr. Robert B. Douglas):
"There are forces, Lucius, infinitely more powerful than reason and science."

"What are they?" asked Cotta.

"Ignorance and folly," replied Aristaeus.
In French:
"Il y a des forces, Lucius, infiniment plus puissantes que la raison et que la science."

"Lesquelles?" demanda Cotta.

"L'ignorance et la folie," répondit Aristée.
