иногда правда диковиннее вымысла [выражение создано Байроном; см. цитату]

't is strange, but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction... (G. G. Byron, ‘Don Juan’, canto XIV) — Вам может показаться странным это, Но дело в том, что вымысел бледней, Чем истина... (перевод П. Козлова)

‘When a person makes up a story, the first thing he tries to bear in mind is to make up a story that's plausible. When he relates events just as they happened, the story doesn't sound so plausible.’ ‘I can't exactly see that,’ Della Street objected. ‘You've heard the old adage,’ he asked, ‘That truth is stranger than fiction?’ (E. S. Gardner, ‘The Case of the Curious Bride’, ch. 15) — - Когда человек рассказывает о чем-нибудь, он прежде всего старается, чтобы его рассказ звучал правдоподобно. А если рассказывать о событиях так, как они действительно происходили, то, как правило, рассказ звучит не очень убедительно. - Я как-то не совсем понимаю, - заметила Делла Стрит. - А вы разве не слышали, - спросил Перри Мейсон, - старинное изречение: "Иногда правда диковиннее вымысла"?
