French
Le choix est possible dans un sens, mais ce qui n'est pas possible, c'est de ne pas choisir. Je peux toujours choisir, mais je dois savoir que si je ne choisis pas, je choisis encore.

German
Sie können zwar wählen, aber was nicht möglich ist, ist nicht zu wählen. Ich kann immer wählen, doch ich muß wissen: wenn ich nicht wähle, wähle ich immer noch.
