  1. As a translator with French as mother tongue, I would like to point out that “solution de facilité” is not equivalent to “solution facile” = easy solution. The only translation I can come up with for “de facilité” is “to take the easy way out”.
    I don’t really see what Mr. Lejeune means by that…

  2. Even more difficult is the rejection of easy solutions for the sake of difficulty.

  3. Est encore plus difficile le rejet de solutions faciles pour des raisons de difficulté.
