Hello All !

please could you give me a help with this expression ?

" lest this sound fanciful , it's certainly true that ..."

Here , I didn't find "lest " but I know that it could mean : "de crainte que" or "de peur que " ..

but it doesn't sound right in my sentence :confused:

thank you ..

    "Lest this sound fanciful, it is certainly true that all multicellular plants and animals do contain mitochondria."

    "au risque que cela résonne de manière extravagante, il est absolument réel que toutes les plantes multicellulaires et les animaux contiennent vraiment des mitochondries "

    my best choice !

    so what do you think about please ?
