    Hello, do you have this saying or something similar in your language? Thanks

    Hundred times repeated lie is becoming truth.

    Czech:

    Stokrát opakovaná lež se stává pravdou.

    We have the same saying in Turkish:

    Bir şeyi yüz kere söylersen olurmuş : If you say a thing a hundred times, they say that it would happen.

    It won't be in Tagalog. It is Katalampasanan .From root word "lampas" out of scope? ! I think the rules in real Tagalog will reveal the twisted ideas of other ethnic languages.

    Cannot imagine an expression like that in Dutch.

    In simplified Chinese: 谎话说一百遍就会变成真的。 Possibly a direct translation from English or some European language.
