Occasionally I'd like to write something in French that is of a maxim form:
To be A is to be B
E.g.: “to be loved, is to be known”
This is somewhere between uncommon and idiomatic in structure, so it's difficult to translate. My best guesses are pretty straightforward, but I'd like some expert advice. Is there even a straightforward translation of this?
Maybe “Être aimé, c'est d'être connu” or “Être aimé, être connu”?
