Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

It is possible that the phrase was first constructed as Che sera, sera by Christopher Marlowe for his play Doctor Faustus (Act 1, Scene 1), che sarà, sarà. This would not be quite grammatically correct in Italian, the correct form being quello che sarà, sarà. However, it seems more likely that Marlowe was quoting from the Latin, as is consistent with other quotations in the play.

Phrase[edit]

che sarà, sarà

  1. "Whatever will be, will be."
