English term or phrase: All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered
"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered. The point is to discover them."

--- Galileo

I don't speak Italian and I am looking for the original Italian phrase which was stated by Galileo. I have seen a few different translations in English and Spanish on the Internet, but I would like to know what the source language phrase actually is Italian.

agree  Giuseppe Bellone: Sì, credo che in italiano si sia voluto evitare la ripetizione e usato quindi una volta -rivelare e un'altra -scoprire. E suona meglio che in inglese quindi. :)
