I would just point out that I have heard this before my entire life from Spanish culture. He learned it from latin culture....I have heard this in the context of "pow" or "bada bing bada bang"...."whoosh", or "bam".....
He just added a back philosophy to it.
It is amazing that there is a French word with a similar meaning. But will you also imply that "ouch", or "Ahh" are french words we all copied....come on man, REALLY? That anal?
One- "Latin culture" includes Spain Italy and France. Their language all comes from latin, and are very similar.
Two - the meaning is the same, as I explained.
-Three- If the word is pronounced exactly the same, and has exactly the same meaning, and comes from the same base language, maybe it could have been a coincidence, but the chances are slim. That does not invalidate the fact that the word already exists.
-Four- The anal comment was necessary? Really?
To that, I answer "caca"- which exists both in spanish and french, because it comes from latin.
I'm not finished! As I came in here, I heard those words, "Cradle of Leadership". Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here. It has fallen. Makers of men, Creators of leaders. Be careful what kind of leaders you're producing here. I don't know if Charlie's silence here today is right or wrong. I'm not a judge or jury, but I can tell you this: He won't sell anybody out to buy his future! And that, my friends, is called integrity. That's called courage. Now that's the stuff leaders should be made of. Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew. But I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. Now here's Charlie. He's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey. You hold this boy's future in your hands, committee. It's a valuable future. Believe me. Don't destroy it. Protect it. Embrace it. It's gonna make you proud one day, I promise you.

1: Latino /hispanic culture is slightly different than latin culture.
2:FOI in French is akin to faith. This word though sounding similar is not related to faith. It is more akin to a "can do" attitude, or as the man put it, an "extra" bit of energy or force to accomplish a task when you feel empty and weak. .....Gusto,....umf.
It is not an act of faith or the state of having faith, or a profession of faith or anything else you say it is. "Tu as la foi aujourd'hui?" this means "do you have faith today". Do you believe.....dont stretch it too far there to make your argument bud.
